Crock Pot Tuesday

Now that I'm into the crock pot thing, I try and make everything in the crock pot...even something simple like spaghetti. Although spaghetti doesn't take too long...it does take up 3 burners and therefore requires some time management so that the pasta isn't all gluey while the meat is still browning...so I went in search of a spaghetti recipe for the crock pot.

Crock Pot Spaghetti

1 pound ground beef
1 package spaghetti
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
spices of choice

spray bottom of crock pot and dump meat and sauce in crock pot. break pasta in half and place in pot. Mix up well. Add any spices you like. I use black pepper, minced garlic to taste, and oregano. You can hardly go wrong with adding Italian spices to spaghetti. Cook for 4-5 hours and enjoy. You can add some fresh Parmesan cheese for the last 10 minutes or so.

I love using my crack pot, I mean crock pot, ha. I'm making corned beef in it right now hope it turns out. I tried spaghetti once but it wasn't that great so you're inspiring me to try again!
