The slow cooker is great for this sauce because the low heat distribution over several hours allows the flavors to mingle and mix together. You can find slow cookers in a variety of sizes to best fit your needs. We use this 6 quart oval Crock Pot, a model of the original slow cooker.

We’ve been using our spiralizer quite a bit lately, and we wanted a sauce that would add some new flavor to dinner time. We realized it had been a while since we’d had spaghetti sauce, so we started focusing on what spices and veggies we could use to build off a tomato-y base. Things really started clicking and in no time we had this wonderful, beefy sauce ready to pour over our plates of zoodles.
