Slow Cooker Italian Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

The slow cooker saved me again. I was short on time and promised the family spaghetti, so I decided on this Slow Cooker Italian Spaghetti Sauce Recipe. There is not much prep time outside of browning the burger and Italian sausage so I was able to put it together rather quickly. This is a simple recipe that is very mildly seasoned depending on the type, or recipe, of Italian sausage you are using. The slow cooker does an excellent job of blending in the flavors because of the long cooking time. If things start to get ahead of you and you don’t get it on right away in the morning;  just kick the slow cooker on high to finish it off. Enjoy

    The list of ingredients doesn’t mention onions. How much did you use?
