Crock Pot Spaghetti

I have a full time job and an hour commute each way so with what little time I have left in my day I love to cook recipes like this! (not to mention that it's good) I mean is there anything better after a long day than coming home to a home cooked meal. It has a combination of hamburger, italian sausage, cute little peperoni and noodles cooked in the sauce rather than water which makes them extra flavorful. Oh yeah, it has mushrooms too... which are totally gross... fungus... yuck, but my sweetie loves them so there they are... for his enjoyment.
1 lbs ground beef
1 lb italian sausage
1/2 6oz pkg sliced pepperoni
1 cup chopped onions
2 cloves minced garlic
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
2 tsp italian seasoning
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 lb sliced fresh mushrooms
4.5 cups tomato juice
24 oz dry spaghetti broken into 4-5 inch pieces
grated Parmesan cheese

1. Brown and drain ground chuck and italian sausage.
2. Combine all ingredients except spaghetti and parmesan cheese in a large crockpot
3. Cover. Cook on low 6-8 hrs, or high 3-5 hrs. Turn to high during the last 30 to 40 mins and stir in dry spaghetti. If the spaghetti is not done to your desired degree of doneness let it cook another 10 mins.
4. Sprinkle individual servings with parmesan cheese and serve.
