I love Italian food, and one of my favorite dishes to serve is spaghetti with red sauce. This Slow-Cooked Spaghetti Sauce is perfect for days when you don’t have time to make the sauce on the stove. Or the meatballs. 

Just brown the sausage and stir it into the other ingredients. Set your slow-cooker on low and let it do the work. When it’s time for dinner, all you have to do is cook the spaghetti and in ten minutes you’re ready to eat!
