CrockPot Spaghetti

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: Feeds a family of 6-8


2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 C Hot Water
1 24 oz Jar Spaghetti Sauce
1 8 oz Jar Mushrooms (drained)
1 LB Browned Hamburger Meat
2 T Italian Seasoning
1 Full Package Whole Wheat Spaghetti Noodles (approx. 17 oz pkg)


Use the olive oil to grease your crock. Add all the ingredients except the Noodles. Mix well. Cover and set CrockPot on High for one hour. Break noodles in half, add to Crock, and try to cover them with the sauce mixture. Cover and let cook 1 hour or so, stirring occasionally (I stir every 15-20 minutes, replacing the lid, for the full hour). Depending on what brand of noodles I use, more water is sometimes needed. If you find your noodles need more water, add up to 2 or so Cups HOT(so you don’t break your Crock) water between stirring (I do this in ½ cut increments). Serve with your favorite vegetable

* If it’s too runny, leave the lid off for a while and stir every few minutes, this will evaporate any extra liquid. If the pasta hasn’t set up, you may need to add more water, stir, put your lid back on and check it again in 15 minutes… this is the basics to cooking pasta in a Slow Cooker.*
