Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce

Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce

The weather is getting cooler so it’s time to pull out your slow cooker! Slow cookers are a great kitchen gadget for when you can’t spend more than 30 minutes in the kitchen but want a satisfying meal. Another great use for slow cookers is to make sauces, like this recipe for Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce. To avoid all the flavors blending together, we sauté the onions and garlic first for 10 minutes before putting the rest of the ingredients into the cooker.

The result is a recipe that makes a savory, filling and fresh tomato sauce that you can use in your favorite pasta or pizza recipes. You can also freeze it for up to 6 months and defrost when you need a healthy tomato sauce in a pinch. Also, by making your own tomato sauces you not only use fresh tomatoes, which are in season this fall, but you cut down on added salt and sugar from jarred sauces.
