Spaghetti with Sausage and Veggies
Brown Italian sausage, drain fat, put into slow cooker. Add a bit of oil (canola or olive) to the pan, add diced vegetables: onion, carrot, red pepper, zucchini. I like to use the pre-shredded carrots, then further mince them in small pieces. Saute until they begin to get some color on them, adding a bit of crushed red pepper to taste. Put into slow cooker. Add some water to the pan to get all the browned bits off, pour into slow cooker. Add a can of your favorite .99 spaghetti sauce. yep. Towards the end of cooking, add some parmesan cheese and a bit of the pasta water to help thicken the sauce.
