Crockpot Marinara

Prep: 15 minutes (8-10 hours in crockpot)
Yield: 10-12 servings

2 onions, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
4 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning, undrained
6 oz. can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning

Combine all ingredients in a 3-4 quart crockpot, cover, and cook on low setting for 8-10 hours. Serve sauce over spaghetti. 10-12 servings.

Tips and Tricks:
This is a super easy crock pot marinara sauce. It can be served on spaghetti for a yummy meatless meal or side. I am more inclined to throw a few raw chicken breasts, meatballs, or leftover roast right in with the sauce to simmer & cook all day for a complete main dish in one pot.

Make it Healthier:
Add pureed cooked carrots and diced bell peppers for more veggies. Its already fat-free!
