Crock Pot Fusili

Crock Pot Fusili

This is my crock pot adaptation of a friend's delicious ground beef stove top spaghetti sauce.

1 lb stew beef, finely diced

1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
5-6 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup red wine
1 can tomato paste
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp parsley
1 tsp basil (or 1 tbsp fresh basil)
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp rosemary
1 8 oz package fusili* **

In slow cooker add beef, onion, garlic, diced tomatoes, roma tomatoes, tomato sauce, red wine, and spices. Cook on low heat for 6-7 hours. Turn heat to high, add tomato paste, balsamic vinegar and pasta. Cook one hour more.

*Fusili is fun but any pasta will work
**Tinkyada makes a really good gluten free fusili
