Angry sauce! Healthy, easy, spicy tomato sauce to serve over pasta (my preference is penne). From my friend, Marian, modified for a crockpot.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet.
  2. Add garlic, sauté until flavor is released, about a minute.
  3. Sauté onion until softened.
  4. Stir crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, red wine, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes into crockpot.
  5. Add onion.
  6. Cook on low heat 4 hours. (I'm recommending four hours as a median time. It can be cooked more or less--I've made it in two hours, as well as let it cook for up to eight, and it was delicious each time. The original recipe calls for preparation over a stove with the instruction to "simmer until you can't stand it"--so it's really up to you.).
