2-Ingredient Italian Country-Style Ribs Recipe
In a hurry to get to work but want to have dinner ready when you get home? This 2-Ingredient Slow Cooker Italian Country-Style Ribs, can be assembled in the slow cooker in about 5 minutes. The ribs cook in your favorite canned (or homemade if you have it on hand) spaghetti sauce all day. All you need to do when you return home from work is cook pasta and serve it with the yummy ribs and sauce. Purchase some fresh crusty bread to serve with the ribs and sauce. You can also add a quick packaged salad.
This easy dinner will remind you of Italian Sunday sauce; you can add other meats to the mix if you have a little more time or leftovers. Since canned and bottled spaghetti sauce is actually quite good, and country style pork ribs are flavorful, no other seasoning is necessary. If you like a little spice, you can add a teaspoon or two of crushed chili pepper. Although pasta is the obvious choice to serve this with, it can also be served over rice, polenta, or gnocchi. Nothing could be easier, and this will become a family favorite.
