Making the one of the easiest dinner recipe even easier! I love this simple Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce, full of flavor and something my family loves.
Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce
I have been making my own spaghetti sauce for years! It’s so easy and I think it taste great. To make life even easier I used my slow cooker and just had to boil my spaghetti 10 minutes before dinner time. Cooking it low and slow all day is the best way to do it.
Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Ingredients:
- Ground beef (or ground turkey)
- Onions and Green peppers
- Canned crushed tomatoes and diced tomatoes.
Do I have to brown ground beef first?
For this recipe you will need to start your meal on the stove tip. Also the onions, peppers, and garlic will cook with the beef and it should take no longer then 10 minutes. If you are choice to skip the beef and make a tomato sauce you can add everything right to the slow cooker including the veggies.

Can I ground beef in my slow cooker?
Some slow cookers are stove top safe but a lot of them are not. Before using your insert on the stove top make sure to find out if your model made to do that. If your slow cooker allows it then you can easily cook the ground beef and veggies in the insert then move to your slow cooker. Here is an example of a slow cooker that can be used on the stove top, Crock-Pot with stove top browning.
How to make Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce:
Start by heating your olive oil in a skillet and cooking your beef. Cook on medium heat and add minced onions, green peppers, and garlic. Cook until brown.
