School Time Spaghetti

As you rush around to get your kids and hubby off to school/work do the following:

1. Put your favorite spaghetti sauce in a crock pot.
2. Add the following:
1/2 pound of grass-fed ground beef
1/2 pound of grass-fed ground pork
handful of chopped fresh spinach
handful of chopped fresh basil
a few sprigs of fresh oregano
1 t. turmeric
1/2 of finely chopped onion
2 finely chopped garlic cloves
3.Cook all day!
4.Walk in the door and boil your noodles and it is ready to go.

A few more tips: I use a mini food processor to chop my onions and garlic. It is much faster than using a knife. You also can use frozen meat. If you are home during the day and you use frozen meat, occasionally mix and chop up the meat. I also like to double the recipe and freeze half for another meal. I love this recipe because it has so many healthy ingredients and kids LOVE spaghetti!!! :)
