This was super easy and has a good flavor. You can eat as is, or cook up some protein and add it in at the end! This recipe is good for Whole30 or non-Whole30, just change what you serve it on. For Whole30 I served over zoodles…..and threw in a sweet potato as I do to most meals. And don’t worry….I definitely went back for seconds!
Crock Pot Marinara Sauce
- 2 28 oz. cans crushed tomatoes
- 1 6 oz. can tomato paste
- 1 medium yellow onion
- 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp. dried basil
- 1/2 Tbsp. dried oregano
- 1 Tbsp. brown sugar (leave out for Whole30)
- 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- salt & pepper to taste
- optional protein: ground turkey, ground beef (I used ground turkey)
Chop the onion and mince garlic (or use pre-minced). Place in bottom of crock pot.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
If adding a protein, cook the meat and season with Italian seasoning when it is close to 8 hours. Once cooked, pour into crock pot and stir to combine. Recover to let finish heating or let it sit on warm for 20-30 minutes.
