20. Make my own amazing CrockPot recipe.


Today I made, what I think was, a totally delicious dinner with my CrockPot. It gets the "amazing" stamp because of its tastiness and economic value. Behold! Spaghetti with vegetables and sausage!

Where the magic happens!
It's quite simple. Pour into the CrockPot a 16 oz can of spaghetti sauce. On top of the sauce, add 3-4 hot Italian sausages -- or more, if you wish. They can be frozen or not. Top that with a large onion, sliced thin/chopped fairly well. Add a good amount of frozen spinach and frozen julienned bell peppers. Spice it up with garlic salt and Italian seasoning. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.

Then, right before serving, cook 8 ounces of spaghetti per package directions. I used corn pasta, my favorite. Mix in and enjoy!

P.S. I have discovered that you can put pretty much any soup or sauce and meat and it turns out delicious! I love my CrockPot...
P.P.S. When Sean ate this he gave it high compliments and told me that the way to his heart is through his stomach. AWWWWW!!! Success.
