YUMMY!!! This was great and the next batch I make, I think I'll add some stuff, green peppers, mushrooms etc. But the basic sauce was fantastic. Hubby, who is very very fussy when it comes to spaghetti sauce loved it too. We've had it twice since I made it last Wednesday and I was able to freeze a total of 4 meals. Love this recipe! Thanks!!

BAM!! You just knocked us out with this one Nurse Di. I love my spaghetti sauce without any meat. The flavor of this was outstanding. Cooking it in the crock-pot just made it easy and really brought out the flavor of the herbs. I did like Cheryl and froze this for future use. So indebted to you.

Very impressed with your spaghetti sauce recipe. Has a full-bodied Italian seasoning flavor with nice tender chunks of tomato. I served it over angel hair pasta and sprinkled fresh grated parmesan cheese. We had a wonderful meal.

If my stomach could smile (and maybe it can, who knows?) it would be smiling after eating this delicious meal. This sauce has a delicious fresh taste. I only had time to simmer in the crockpot for 4 hours, but it is still utterly scrumptious. (Probably just a little runnier than it would've been otherwise.) I added a chopped green and red pepper, and twice as much garlic. I also made some homemade meatballs (easy - 1 lb ground beef with 1/4 of an onion chopped, 1 garlic clove, minced, a bit of basil and oregano, 1 egg, salt and pepper and a handful of rolled oats.) which I sauted first and then added to the simmering sauce. They were delicious - tender and flavorful thanks to this sauce. :) Try this one for supper tonight! You'll love it. Thanks to NurseDi for a fantastic recipe I'll be making often.

This sauce was excellent! The flavor was zesty, with just a bit of a "bite," which I like. There were nice chunks of tomato, not that thin runny stuff you buy in the store. And I was able to freeze a ton for later use -- quite a savings over store bought! Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing.

Great tasting, easy to make and made the house smell great! I cut this recipe in half, added 1/2 a batch of meatballs (used Kim's Italian Meatballs), and added a can of sliced mushrooms. I put the tomatoes in the blender to chop. I will definitely make this again!

This is awesome. I added 1/4 cup of red wine and it was delicious. Put everything in my crockpot and cooked on low for six hours. Thanks for the recipe.

Wow! I made this today (I've been using my slow cooker alot lately), and it was fabulous. I used 3 cloves of garlic and I threw in some meatballs and it smelled so delicious while it was cooking my mouth was watering from it! Served with some good garlic bread and what a meal! This is going to be my slow cooker sauce from now on! Thanks :)

Without a doubt, the best meatless spaghetti sauce I have ever tasted. This is so versatile, I have used it in any recipe that calls for prepared spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce. Incredible seasonings and deserves extra-credit points for how easy it is to make. Thanks!!

This filled the house with an amazing aroma. It had a fresh flavor and reminded me of the homemade sauce I grew up eating. I followed the recipe except I only had 6oz of tomato paste and I used stewed Italian-style tomatoes that I chopped.
