It is always very hot where I live when the tomatoes and peppers are ripe, so I constantly seek out crock pot recipes. Here is one I use for spaghetti sauce.
Source: I found this at allrecipes.com and have played with the recipe several times, but this is the basic version that I love.

I love using crock pots and developed this way of cooking Italian food when I was working. I put a can of spaghetti sauce in a crock pot and then add either Italian sausage, chicken (particularly legs and thighs), or beef such as London broil. This could be used for sandwiches with Italian bread, on top of spaghetti, or just as it is with a salad or other vegetables. The house smells great, too.
Empty the can of spaghetti sauce in the crock pot. Set it on low if you will be gone all day. Add the protein. I don't usually cook the chicken or sausage before hand. The beef is usually already cooked.

Probably the very best I ever tasted... and I've tasted lots of spaghetti!
Place all ingredients in crock pot and add prepared meat balls.
(important to include these in this recipe)
Mix all together and use 1/4 cup measure to scoop mixture to form balls. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F to firm up and add to sauce. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Can be doubled in a 6 quart crock pot. This also freezes very well.

I've tried so many other recipes for this spaghetti sauce and always return to this old recipe I've used for years.
Hot cooked spaghetti.
1. In a large skillet, saute beef over medium heat until no longer pink, drain.
2. Transfer to a 5 quart crockpot or slow cooker. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, broth brown sugar, seasonings and wine; mix well.
3. Cover and cook on LOW heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or until bubbly. Discard bay leaf. Serve over hot cooked spaghetti. Yield: 12 to 14 servings
