Slow Cooker Italian Sausage and Beef Spaghetti Sauce

Posted on
Come home to an Italian feast with this Slow Cooker Italian Sausage & Beef Spaghetti Sauce. Two meats simmer all day long in the crock pot for maximum flavor. Leftovers freeze really well for another pasta dinner night.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb mild Italian sausage
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed (I use garlic paste)
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar (can also use granulated sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper



  1. Spray the insert of the slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. In a skillet pan, over medium-high heat, add the ground beef, Italian sausage, onion, and salt. Cook and crumble until meat is browned. Drain grease. Add into the slow cooker.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir together. Cover with lid and cook on LOW heat for 7-8 hours.
  4. Serve over pasta noodles and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Leftovers freeze really well. I put extra spaghetti sauce in a quart-sized Ziploc freezer bag.
