Good Afternoon Readers! Over the last month I have been experimenting with my Crock Pot. I had some ground beef in the freezer and decided to make a hearty meat sauce for dinner. Some of my favorite sauces that I have had have been simmered and cooked for hours. What is better than using your Crock Pot to make this easy sauce and let it cook all day. I served the sauce with whole wheat spaghetti, I love whole wheat pasta but Jon is not a fan. You can use any pasta of your choice or even eat it on it’s own why not!?
