I whipped up another crock pot meal on a whim last night and thought I would share. This one turned out super delicious and very easy to prepare. Allow a couple of hours of crock pot time.
Spaghetti with Sausage (2-3 servings)
A few links of sausage (preferably still in the casings). It can be frozen too.
28 oz can of tomato puree
Medium onion, sliced or diced
2 cloves of chopped garlic or garlic powder
Salt and pepper
1/2 pound of spaghetti
Remove sausage from freezer and let thaw. If you don't have time to thaw out the sausage, put it in the microwave in defrost mode for a few minutes to take the chill off. In the meantime, heat a skillet to medium-high heat for a few minutes and add a few tablespoons of olive oil to coat the pan. Add onion and garlic cloves (if you are using garlic powder add the powder with the herbs to the sauce) and cook until translucent and soft. This usually takes a few minutes. While the onion is cooking, add the sauce and herbs to the crockpot and set to high. When onions are done, add to the crock pot. Return the skillet to the medium-high heat and add a touch more oil. Add the sausage links to the skillet and brown on all sides. When the links are done browning, add to the crock pot. Cover the crock pot and let cook for 2 hours.
Add a 1/2 pound of cooked spaghetti and a side salad and you have a delicious meal.
