Italian Style Crock Pot Pork Loins


Italian Pork Loin (In a Crock Pot) image

I was in the mood for spaghetti for dinner, but had a pork loin that needed to be used so instead of doing my usual barbecue sauce and pork, I decided to try the spaghetti sauce instead. I was not disappointed. The pork was fork tender and the sauce served over spaghetti was delicious!

I found the original recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook submitted by Vickie Lowe from Pennsylvania. I found I didn't have the exact ingredients, so I made a couple of substitutions and omitted a few things, and I came up with this. Posted on March 24th, 2006 (original recipe called for bone-in chops and fresh mushrooms).
