Yes, you can make sauce quickly or you can spend all day stirring and watching your pot of sauce. I chose to make it in the slow cooker and I am so glad I did! I didn’t have to touch the sauce all day (I cooked the ground beef, onion, and garlic early in the day and used an immersion blender on the tomatoes, because I don’t like chunks of tomato in my sauce, while the ground beef was cooking). We were home at 9:00 pm ish for dinner and had an amazing sauce all ready for us.
I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out because by the time we ate it had been cooking about 10 hours. I was hoping it wasn’t burnt at the bottom or overly bland. We tasted it and added a bit more spice but it was REALLY good! My son it said it was the best sauce I ever made. From my biggest critic that is a HUGE compliment.
Serve this dish with pasta, green salad, and a green vegetable to complete the meal. This sauce can also be cooled, frozen and used up to three months later. This would be delicious in a lasagna or with manicotti.
As you can see my children love grated cheese with the sauce!
