Crock Pot Slow Simmered Meat Sauce With Pasta

Serve the best pasta sauce ever, simmered to perfection.

This feel-good pasta sauce will work with any type of pasta. But if you want to put a twist on things or move away from the typical spaghetti pasta then you can  use Mafaldine. It is a flat noodle with ruffled edges that can be a great substitute for spaghetti.

The sauce which is simmered in the sow cooker has much more flavors bursting in your pasta dish that the regular sauce we cook in under 30 minutes or an hour. The slow cooker simmer makes it all magical.
