Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 lb ground beef
1 lb Italian sausage, sliced
2 cans (28 oz each) crushed tomatoes
3/4 of 1 of the tomato cans of water
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp minced parsley
2 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
2 cans (12-oz each) tomato paste
2 cans (12-oz each) tomato puree

Brown meats in a large skillet and drain well; transfer to a 4-quart slow cooker or crockpot.  Add the crushed tomatoes, water, garlic powder, pepper, parsley, and oregano.

Cover cooker and cook on high for 30 minutes.

Add the tomato paste and tomato puree to the cooker; replace lid and cook on low for 6 hours.
