I thought it was OK. I would strongly suggest adding at least 3 ounces of tomato paste, some garlic, basil and pasrley, very important staples for a pasta sauce

Great crock pot recipe! I added some garlic (because we love garlic) and used a little less red pepper flakes than it called for. We found it was a good amount of spice even though it was less than the recipe called for.
