Spaghetti good enough to get me writing again…………

Standard

This is the Easiest spaghetti I’ve ever made. It was a huge bonus that it was all in one pot AND I didn’t even have to boil noodles.

These little facts are a big deal- when I don’t exactly have a lot of extra time or energy to wash a bunch of dishes.  I haven’t posted in quite a while. My life has been a whirlwind of kid’s with broken arms & bad cases of croup requiring steroids.  I could really go on, but alas, you came here for the spaghetti recipe and not to hear about my crazy life. ;P So, here it is!

  • 1 lb ground meat (I used deer sausage)
  • 2 tablespoons instant minced onion (I used fresh diced green onion)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce (I used a jar of spaghetti sauce)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons italian seasoning
  • 4 ounces mushrooms (i used canned/drained)
  • 3 cups tomato juice (I used a can of sloppy joe sauce mixed with water to tomato juice consistency because I didn’t have tomato juice)
  • 4 ounces spaghetti, broken into pieces (I just broke in half)

Directions:

  1. Brown beef and place in crockpot.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients except spaghetti and stir well.
  3. Cover and cook on low heat for 4-6 hours.
  4. Turn to high the last hour and stir in spaghetti. (because I used my small crock pot and the sauce was bubbling already, I didn’t need to put on High (left it on Low) and it was DONE in 45 minutes.
Give it a try! It was a huge hit with the family and we’re having it again tonight, twice-baked-spaghetti. It’s even better the next night 😀

About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
