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.

I have never made this recipe.  It is from the little recipe/instruction book that came with my first crockpot back in the early 1970s.

1 lb ground beef
1 tbsp instant minced onion
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp each: mace, allspice, and pepper
4 ounces dry spaghetti (1 1/2 cups) broken in 4 - 5-inch pieces
8-ounce can tomato sauce
4-ounce can mushrooms
3 cups tomato juice

Brown ground beef well in skillet and place in CROCK-POT.  Add all remaining ingredients except dry spaghetti; stir well.  Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. (High: 3 1/2 hours) Turn to high last hour and stir in dry spaghetti.
