Dad's Spaghetti Sauce from Jenn:
2 (28 oz) cans diced fire roasted tomatoes
3 (14 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground sausage
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
3 shakes Tabasco sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
Put the tomatoes in the crock pot. Brown the ground beef and sausage, drain and add to the tomatoes. Wipe out your fring pan, get it hot again and add a little olive oil. Throw in the garlic and let it just start to cook, then add the diced onion. Cook onion until translucent. Put the garlic and onion in the crock pot, then cook the mushrooms in the same frying pan. Add a little olive oil if necessary. When the mushrooms start to brown around the edges, add them to the crock pot. Stir in Italian seasoning, Tabasco and brown sugar. Cook on low about 6 hours. Serve with spaghetti noodles.
Additional things to add: sliced olives, Italian sausage, meatballs, whatever sounds good.
*I make this without a recipe, so this is my best guess for how I made it today.
*Beef and sausage don't have to be cooked all the way when you add them to the crock pot.
