Crockpot Spicy Spaghetti Sauce

This is my friend Janet's spaghetti sauce and it is so tasty. This recipe makes enough sauce for 2 spaghetti dinners or 2, 9x13 pans (4, 8x8 pans) of  Janet's Mostocioli Pasta Bake (I've listed this recipe separately). So you can have it with spaghetti one night and then freeze half and make Mostocioli Pasta Bake another night. I love great double duty recipes! Thanks Janet!

Crockpot Spicy Spaghetti Sauce

1 lb hot Italian sausage, cooked and drained
1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups diced green peppers (I used frozen chopped green peppers)
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1, 12 oz can tomato paste
1, 15 oz can tomato sauce
1, 28 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1, 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 cup sugar
2 bay leaves

Combine all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Makes about 12 cups of spaghetti sauce.
