Crockpot Love

Welcome Fall!
(I know, I am about a week late.)
With the onset of Fall, the crockpot will become one of my kitchen best friends, and I am using it for tonight's dinner!
Spaghetti with homemade meat sauce, courtesy of my mother-in-law's recipe.
My house smells so delish!

Meat Sauce Recipe:
*2 cans tomato sauce (15 oz each)-You can use Italian flavor if you have it.
*1 can tomato paste (12 oz total)
*1 can water (15 oz)
*1 can mushrooms (4 oz)
*1 pkg Lawry's Dry Spaghetti Sauce Mix
*1 Tbsp sugar
*1 1/2-2lbs of hamburger (I like to use ground round)
*1/4 cup chopped onions
*garlic powder or you can use fresh to use when browning meat

Brown hamburger, onion and garlic-drain grease.  Add all other ingredients with the meat in a crockpot or sauce pan.  Simmer for 1-2 hours on stovetop, or on cook on low in crockpot for at least 2 hours.  The longer the sauce cooks/simmers, the better the flavor.  Serve over pasta of choice or whatever you desire!
