Are you tired of the BORING spaghetti sauce that you buy at the store in a jar? Yeah, i know- it's quick and it's easy- it's no fun coming home to cook after working all day. Here is an easy and inexpensive spaghetti sauce you can make. Takes just a few minutes to prepare and you can let your crock pot do the rest....
2 lbs ground beef
1 large green pepper
1 large onion
1 (13 oz) pkg pepperoni or 8 oz italian sausage cut up
1 (4.5oz) can mushrooms - if u like mushrooms, add as much as u like!
44 oz tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Brown ground beef; drain fat
Add green pepper
, onion, pepperoni/ sausage to ground beef.
Add mushrooms, tomato sauce, and ketchup.
Sprinkle salt, pepper
, oregano, and garlic salt on top and mix all ingredients together.
I use a crock pot and let it cook on low for 5 or 6 hours, but using a large sauce pan and letting it cook slowly for 2.5 to 3 hours will do the same thing.
Cooking slowly allows all the spices and pepperoni/ sausage to mix in with the beef and give a fantastic flavor!
