      Excellent! We had this with vegetables and pasta. The marjoram is great in it, I added even some more after cooking because I liked the flavour so much. Thanks for sharing!

      I made this recipe as part of the Crock Pot challenge in ZWT 8. I did a few changes, reduced the oil to 1 tbsp and used chives and parsley for the fresh herbs. I sauteed the onions and garlic in a pan, and added the mixture to the crock pot along with roma tomatoes. It cooked on high for 90 min and on low for 30 min. I removed the bay leaves and blended the sauce with a hand blender and added fresh herbs and tomato past. The flavour and freshness is delicious. Made by Bistro Babes.
