Crock Pot Spaghetti


:: Crock Pot Spaghetti ::

Welcome, Back to School!  That being said, things are about to get crazy around here… time to pull out the crock pot and make a little plan ahead Crock Pot Spaghetti for dinner.  Whew! With the kids in soccer, school, and therapy we have a busy Fall season.  Meal planning is something Sara and I are really trying to add into our weekly schedules.  It helps to run a smooth household, as well as, fewer trips to the grocery store.  This Crock Pot Spaghetti Recipe is one that I created based on my favorites… pasta, chicken sausage, and turkey meat.  These little gems from my neighbor’s backyard, inspired me to think of a sauce that, though canned {tomatoes}, can be full of flavor over a slow cooking process.

Simple canned favorites of tomato sauce, marinara, and paste with the combination of chicken sausage and ground turkey meat, creates a flavorful sauce.  Slow cooking in the crock pot makes this meal a cinch to pull together.  All you have to do is boil some water for pasta, and add a side salad! You’ll have a great weeknight meal! Yum!
