Mom’s Crockpot Spaghetti Recipe

I finally got around to posting the spaghetti recipe from the other night that I made with yummy garlic bread. My mom gave me this recipe when I went off to college and it is one of the first things I made when I started cooking for myself. I still love this classic spaghetti recipe, especially because you can season it just the way you like with basil and oregano…yum! Crockpot recipes are the best because you can start them and leave them all day while you work, etc. This week flashed by me and so many things happened! I got an internship after searching for over a year (yay!) and school has been getting overwhelming because I can’t keep up with the pace this quarter. I just keep telling myself: it will all be ok! Tomorrow my family is coming to visit from LA, I am soo excited to see them 🙂 I am planning on making a German cherry streusel, so stay tuned.
