3 cloves garlic- chopped

Cook ground beef  until well done. Put all sauce ingredients (except: sugar, Parmesan cheese and spaghetti )into a crock pot and whisk. Add the beef mixture and stir well. Turn crock pot on and cover. Let sauce simmer for several hours. Of course all crock pots have different temperatures and heat will vary so use your own judgement regarding temperature settings. This can also be cooked in a large pan on the stove.
