Slow Cooking Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

This sauce gets a convenient head start from prepared spaghetti sauce. I simply add a few everyday ingredients of my own. Most folks think it's homemade.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 3 hours YIELD:4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into strips
  • 3-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • Hot cooked spaghetti

Directions

  • 1. In a skillet over medium heat, brown sausage and cayenne for about 5 minutes. Add enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Drain; transfer to a 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker. Add onion and green pepper. Pour spaghetti sauce on top. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook 2-3 hours longer. Serve over spaghetti. Yield: 4-6 servings.
