12 oz ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers(optional)
1 14.5 can diced tomatoes, undrained
3 cups beef broth
2 sm cans tomato paste
1 TB brown sugar
2 cups water
seasonings to taste:
1 lb spaghetti noodles, broken up
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
In a large pot cook ground beef, onions and garlic until meat is no longer pink.
Drain and return to the pot.
Add beef broth,tomatoes, tomato paste,peppers (if using) brown sugar and water. Seasonings to taste and bring to a boil.
Scoop onto a plate and top with more parmesan cheese as desired...I sprinkle on a few red pepper flakes too.
Add beef broth, tomato paste, water , sugar and seasonings. Bring to a boil.
Pour entire mixture into a slow cooker(lined preferably!) and add pasta( I had to use penne, I was out of spaghetti and didnt feel like making a batch LOL).
Cover and cook on low 2-4 hours, until pasta is tender.(you need to watch it pretty carefully so it doesnt get mushy not all crock pots are the same so an exact time is difficult, this is also not an "all day" meal...it works if you want to get dinner done a few hours early, but not if you need to leave in the morning) Fold in parmesan cheese close to the end.
Serve as above.
