Slow-Cooker Spaghetti Sauce


We all know that the longer you let spaghetti sauce cook, the better it will taste. Making the sauce in a slow-cooker is essential for a successful marinara or meat sauce. I use ground turkey for the health benefits, so my sauce is delicious and good for you. I have never seen a frown on anyone’s face when they see a plate of spaghetti in front of them.

What You Will Need:
1 lb ground turkey
1 yellow onion
1 large clove of garlic, chopped
1 C carrots, diced
16 oz tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste
Grated parmesan
1 box angel hair pasta
What You Already Have:
1 chicken bouillon
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried parsley
2 bay leaves
1 C water
Dash of salt
Pinch of pepper
1 T olive oil
Large skillet
Slow-cooker

1) Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat.
2) Add onions, garlic and carrots to skillet. Sauté for 10 minutes. Transfer to slow-cooker.

3) Brown turkey in same skillet. Drain and transfer to slow-cooker. Set skillet aside.
4) Stir in tomato sauce, paste, bouillon, oregano, parsley, bay leaves and water. Season with salt and pepper.

5) Cook for at least 2 hours.

6) Prepare pasta according to package directions about 15 minutes from end of cooking time.
7) Serve over angel hair pasta and garnish with grated parmesan.
