      This a great sauce, and very quick and easy. I added 4 cloves of garlic, 2 bay leaves and 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning since I did not have seasoned tomatoes. I also omitted the sugar and used just a pinch of salt. It is great to throw this in the crock pot and forget about it til dinner!

      This sauce is great. I used diced tomatoes and then added dried basil and oregano. 1 bay leaf also. I omitted the salt and pepper. It was very easy to do. Thanks Dreamer :) Made for Holiday tag

      PERFECT! This speghetti sauce is a perfect combination of saucy texture with nutritious veggies easily hidden! ;) I made exactly as is except I left out the mushrooms (DD won't touch anything with mushrooms). I've been looking for the perfect speghetti sauce and I think I've finally found it! I love how it can cook in the slow cooker and I can freeze some for later. I put everything in the crock pot at 8am, cooked it on high, and it was ready by noon. Thank You!!! Made for veg*n swap.
