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 medium yellow onion, chopped 

2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp canola oil
2 cans (7.5-oz each)minced clams, undrained
1 can (1 lb) diced tomatoes
1 can (12-oz) tomato paste
1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley
1 bay leaf
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp salt
Hot cooked spaghetti for 4 to 6 servings

Heat the canola oil in a skillet and cook the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes. Remove the onion and garlic to the slow cooker or crock pot; stir in the tomatoes with juice, clams, tomato paste, parsley, bay leaf, sugar, basil, thyme, and salt; mix together well. Cover the cooker and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve over the hot cooked spaghetti.
