Slow Cooker Thursday - Meaty Spaghetti Sauce

Here's my contribution to Slow Cooker Thursday at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. I've found some great recipes here to add to my weekly meal plans.

Meaty Spaghetti Sauce

1.5 lbs Browned Ground Beef/Turkey
1.5 cups chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 14 oz. can of tomatoes
2 - 6 oz. cans of tomato paste
1.5 tsp. salt
2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
1 bay leaf

Combine all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on low 5-7 hours. Serve over your favorite pasta shape. Freeze leftovers.

This is a yummy spaghetti sauce recipe that I found years ago when I had to cook with low sodium. Add more salt to your liking and you can use reduced/no sodium tomato paste
