Works for me Food

So there have been those of my bloggy (and real life) friends who have been hinting that they would like to have some new recipes, those that come from me. Therefore, I am dedicating my Works-for-me Wednesday post to them, my in-need-of-a-recipe friends.

It is one of our family favorites and I love to let it cook in the crock-pot/slow-cooker for several hours to really let the flavors mesh. This recipe actually came from my mother and I promise you, Husband never liked my spaghetti until I made it this way. So, here goes...

Momma Lu's Spaghetti Sauce(Mom, don't you love how I titled it?)


1 lb ground beef (or turkey)
1 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped (optional)
1 can mushrooms (optional)
2 TBSPs garlic powder
1 TBSP Italian seasoning
2 16 oz cans of tomato sauce
2 small cans of tomato paste
1 can Italian style diced tomatoes (optional, but I always add b/c I love the extra texture)

Brown the ground meat, onion, bell pepper and 1 TBSP of garlic powder until the meat is cooked throughout. Combine the meat mixture with the remainder of the ingredients in your crock-pot and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Serve over pasta and enjoy!
Let me know if you try it and how you like it! For other great Works-for-me Wednesday tips, check out Rocks In My Dryer!
