Pasta sauce recipe with tomato puree. Makes a great basic sauce. Add some red wine or small can of tomato sauce if sauce becomes too thick. Freezes well. Great with fresh basil added.

Absolutely delicious! This is easy to prepare...not sure about the slow cooker process...I cooked it on high and it was hot and bubbly after 2 turned it down to low and let it simmer another 2 hours for dinner...I made as posted using all the optional items including the fresh basil...we loved the heat that the red peppers flakes added to the dish...I've always used a touch of sugar in my sauce...Made for Spring 2014 PAC
