Brown beef in skillet, drain, and place in crockpot. Add all remaining ingredients except the dry spaghetti. Stir well. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3 1/2 hours. Turn to high the last hour and stir in the dry broken spaghetti.

This is a good dish to make when you have to clean house and are too busy to spend much time in the kitchen.
Place ingredients in a 3 or 4 qt. crock pot, stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 2 hrs. Stir. Cook 2 to 5 hrs. longer, checking doneness of pasta the first time, after 4 hours total cooking time. Cook until pasta is done but not mushy.

Put all ingredients into crock pot and stir well. Mix all ingredients together well. Make any size meatballs you prefer.
Place the meatballs in the crock pot on top of the sauce.
DO NOT BROWN THE MEATBALLS! PLACE THEM IN THE SAUCE RAW!
Cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce temperature and cook on low for 8 hours.
Skim grease occasionally. Do not stir after adding the meatballs!

Thank you, Louise, I plan to try your recipe, and rescue my slow cooker from the storage room. Do you think this is a good recipe to freeze in small servings? There are two of us and we no longer want meat often. This appeals to me and my husband would really like it! (01/04/2006)
Mary, I do it all the time. It's just the three of us here, hubby, myself and a mostly absent teenage son. This recipe makes a lot, and I'm sure you can cut it in half if you need to. I love this recipe, it's easy to make and smells so fabulous when it's cooking. I love walking into the house and smelling spaghetti sauce cooking. Gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling!

I live on my own during the week. You ladies sure help out an engineer who is use to eating his wife's "GREAT" cooking. Thanks (04/11/2007)
