Crockpot Spaghetti Meat Sauce

I have a love/hate relationship with spaghetti sauce in a jar.  I love the convenience, but it is lacking in the taste department (at least the ones I have tried).  So imagine my excitement when I found a recipe to cook spaghetti sauce in the crockpot...genius!  It tasted so good, and even better, made my house smell amazing in the process.
