    Rita~'s Note:

    Lots of vegetables gives this sauce a meat sauce look but isn't. I had friends come over while it was cooking and taste it a thought it was a meat sauce. I great way to get a variety of vegetables into your family without the I don't like that veggie! This freezes well so you can divide into freezer bags for future use (if it lasts). Use on pasta, in stew, bean dishes, top a pizza, or in soups. This can make this on your stove top as well.

      I love, love, love this! I have made it twice this month from fresh tomatoes and other CSA goodies: the first time I made it as written, and the second with a few little tweaks. Both times I got enough for three meals, and my freezer is now full of healthful and delicious sauce that my kids gobbled without a second thought. The first time I added cooked lentils before serving for a vegetarian delight, and the second I added a small amount of ground turkey to please the carnivore crowd. I also added a few splashes of red wine and some balsamic vinegar the second time, and I dissolved a chunk of parmesan cheese in the sauce both times. Thanks so much, Rita! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

      Such a nice sauce! Have made this twice now, first time made exactly as written and left the sauce nice and chunky. Just made it again this evening adding a good teaspoon of crushed red pepper, this time using my immersion blender to smooth the sauce out after cooking for 4 hours and then letting cook for another hour. Used for spaghetti tonight and lasagna in a few days, with another container full in the freezer for something else! I think I actually like the blended sauce better, really helps the flavors blend into a complex, rich taste. A great use for my CSA veggies and love how nutritious this is! Thanks so much for posting, love it!

      Rita I made this sauce yesterday to start using up some frozen veggies from the summer harvest. I added in some shredded zuchinni and yellow squash. I used the sauce to make penne pasta bake. Wonderful!! I made a huge batch so I can use the sauce today to make chicken caccitore for today's dinner. The sauce has kayers of flavor and it really tastes lovely. Thank you for a simple to put together recipe and in the crockpot to boot! How simple can it be.
