Slow Cooker Spaghetti With Beef Sauce
If you family loves spaghetti as much as mine, then you know how much more they enjoy homemade sauce too.
What if I could share a recipe with you that not only allows you to make the sauce from scratch, but cook the pasta in the same pot? Really!
Pull out the slow cooker (or crock pot, as I call it) and get ready to have it make homemade spaghetti and sauce for you.
Time Saving Recipes Make More Time For Family
I love sharing recipes like these that allow you to have more time with your children.
- Get down
- and play with them,
- love them,
- giggle with them,
- enjoy them.
For starters, I’m going to share a quick freezer dinner tip that you can use in other recipes too.
Perhaps you have several recipes that you always are needing to grab browned ground beef for. A casserole here, a stew there, whatever the case may be. If you are always finding yourself in the need of loose ground beef in your recipes, try this tip:
- when ground beef is on sale and you’ve bought the big package, come home and brown it up in the frying pan.
- Yes! Brown it up now, without spices. When cooled, put into a freezer bag or container and store in the freezer.
- Then, when you need 1 cup, 2 cups, 3 cups or more, just measure it out and you are ready to go ahead with the rest of your recipe. (454 grams = 1 pound = 2 cups)
- The ground beef is already browned and ready for the next step.
Try it and let me know how this saves time in your kitchen. Comment below.
