    Feast Your Eyes!'s Note:

    Bring your slow-cooker up to speed with this chunky, intensely flavored tomato sauce that is a fabulous whiff of Southern Italy. It's a little salty (from the kalamata olives), spicy (from the hot red peppers and cayenne pepper), quite fragrant (with large amounts of fresh garlic and ripe tomatoes), and surprisingly different (with the addition of shrimp). The slow-simmer cooking process allows each ingredient's flavor to burst through. This is a marinara sauce to choose when you want to bring the traditional flavor of Italy to your dining table. NOTE: This recipe will make 2 meals at once - 1 for now AND 1 for later.
