Spaghetti Sauce


4 tbsp. cooking oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 cups water
teaspoon pepper
teaspoon red pepper, optional
1 lb. ground beef
1 (29 oz.) can tomato puree
1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon oregano
2 lbs. sausage (Italian links or country style)


Brown ground beef in 2 tablespoon hot oil in frying pan. When almost browned, add onion and continue browning until onion is tender. Pour meat and onion into 3 ½ quart slow cookers. Add puree, sauce, paste, water, salt, pepper and oregano and set dial on low setting.

Cut 2 lbs. sausage into pieces and brown in remaining 2 tablespoons oil. When brown, place sausages in sauce in slow cooker. Continue cooking for 12 hours. (if you like your sauce sweeter, you could add ¼ to ½ cup sugar to this.)
