Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce is an easy dinner recipe to make busy weeknights easier! I keep the ingredients on hand to make when I’ll be short on time!
Spaghetti is one of those dinners that I make on days when I just don’t have time or energy to think about dinner. It totally works out because my guys LOVE spaghetti! I mean could eat it every day, would love me to serve it up for lunch and dinner LOVE spaghetti. I like spaghetti but I’m at a once a week, when it’s convenient level of like. So, because I’m the one that makes dinner I get to decide how often we make it. When I know I’m having a busy day I like to make dinner in the crock pot. We so many of the best crock pot recipes and Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce is one of my easiest! It makes an easy dish even easier!!
I typically have a bit more time in the morning after I get the boys off to school so if I know things are going to get crazier I’ll pull out the crock pot and get dinner set up. I love to finish up with the day and know that dinner is ready to go! Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce tastes amazing! I like to make a huge batch of it and I’ll freeze it off for the next week or for weekend lunches for my kids. It really doesn’t get much better than that, right? I get an easy delicious dinner and a freezer meal out of it!
