Crock Pot Meat Sauce for Pasta Recipe

This is a delicious gem that I stumbled upon on Taste of Home.

Start off by browning one pound of ground beef (93/7) and one pound of mild Italian sausage in a large pan.

Next toss in one medium green pepper, one medium onion, one cup carrots, and two cloves of garlic all finely chopped.

Mix in one tablespoon of brown sugar, one tablespoon of Italian seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Transfer all ingredients to a large crock pot along with one can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes, undrained, one can (8 ounces) tomato sauce, one can (6 ounces) tomato paste, and one cup of water.

Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or if you are in a hurry like I was tonight, 4 hours on high.  Serve over any pasta, tonight we chose penne, and top with Parmesan cheese.  Enjoy.
