  • Summary

    Homemade spaghetti sauce is one of those “basics” every cook should have in their collection. Gosh knows, recipes abound depending on tastes, ethnic background as well as amount of time available for cooking. Well here is mine. Simple, flavorful and best of all, there is no slaving over the stove for hours as the simmering process takes place right in your crockpot!

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 3 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
    • 2 large onions, chopped (less if you prefer)
    • 5 cloves garlic, minced

    • 1 (28 ounce) can whole tomatoes, coarsely chopped, undrained
    • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
    • 2 1/2 cups cut-up fresh tomatoes (about 1 pound) or 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
