Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce from Table for Seven

Simple and versatile Make a batch for dinner or to store in your freezer for the future. 

I realized that within my large collection of crock pot recipes around here, there is not one for spaghetti sauce.  Honestly, I don't know why I haven't shared this's a recipe that I've been using for long time.

Probably because, it's a just a basic recipe and well, really, you can buy spaghetti sauce pretty cheap at any grocery store. I do that too.   However, I still believe that making something homemade is best. When it comes to taste and budget.

As mentioned, this is a basic sauce recipe.  I have it labeled as "spaghetti sauce", but, of course, it's your basic red sauce.  Use it wherever you need or require the jarred version of the stuff.

A small note:  I use minced onion for this sauce.  It's strictly more of a time saver on my part.  My family likes a smooth sauce and adding onion pieces requires me to puree it before using.  Not a huge deal, but, using the minced onion saves me the step.  If you don't want to use the dried version, feel free to add a small diced onion instead.

Also, you can cook this on low all day, if you like.  Just be sure you let the flavors cook together for at least 2 hours before serving.  At bit more if you are using fresh onion, just to get it softer.

Adjust the spices to your liking and make it your own!
