Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a pan, heat olive oil. Sauté onions + garlic until translucent, approximately 5-10 minutes.
  • Combine olive oil mixture with all ingredients in the crockpot + stir until combined. Set crockpot to low for 8-10 hours. 
  • Serve over pasta or zoodles! You can also add cooked meatballs/sausage to the sauce for extra flavor + for a full meal. I like to bake my meatballs in the oven + then add them to the sauce to cook for even longer. It makes them SO tender!

Notes

Substitutions for this recipe:
  • Fresh herbs - I prefer to use fresh herbs in this recipe. Depending on what you use, I do a 3 to 1 ratio of fresh to dried spices. For example, you can use 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped herbs or 1 tablespoon of dried herbs.
  • Red Pepper - If you prefer a less spicy sauce, simply omit hot pepper flakes
  • Tomatoes - I prefer to make this with canned crushed tomatoes but you can make them with whole tomatoes that you puree or hand crush.
