How About Homemade Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce?

I know using canned ready made tomato sauce is so convenient when coming back from work…
But it’s so easy to make your own sauce in a few minutes… a sauce that will be ten times better than the one from the supermarkets…

Or… even better, prepare it before leaving in the morning and let it cook slowly during the day… getting all the aromas into the sauce, slowly… for amazing flavors…


Yes, the slow cooker is definitely your friend, and this recipe is a slightly different one than the “How to Make Spaghetti Sauce in Slow Cooker” we posted some time ago.

Try them both and choose your favorite. Or even come up with you own 🙂
