Crockpot Marinara Sauce (for a six quart cooker.)
2 sweet onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic (or more to taste)
6 oz. can tomato paste
1 T sugar (2 pinches)
Saute onions and garlic in a few T olive oil, pour into crockpot. (6 quart cooker)
Add tomato paste, sugar, salt, pepper and 2 T olive oil. Open can of tomatoes and squeeze out most of the seeds, put the crushed up tomatoes into the crockpot. Make sure to add the puree left in the bottom of the can after you have removed the tomatoes to squeeze out the seeds. Cook on low 5 hours. Use handheld immersion blend in the pot to make the sauce smooth.
So far this tasty sauce has appeared in three meals....pasta and meat sauce, pizza on the grill, a dipper for garlic knots. It will be the base of a few more meals, then into the freezer for later.
And all for a total cost of about $6!
