Slow Cooker Marinara Sauce


There is marinara, and then there is this MARINARA- the one that I have spent the last two summers perfecting. It took a lot of trial and error, but this is by far the tastiest sauce to ever land on our dinner plates. It’s tangy, slightly sweet, and bursting with the flavor of fresh tomatoes. Want to know the best part? It cooks in a Crock-Pot! Just add the ingredients and let everything simmer together for 3 hours. That’s it. It’s really that simple, and it’s really that g-o-o-d.

The story behind this marinara:

Every year we grow more tomatoes in our garden than we can possibly eat. We’ve grown everything from Santorini, Campari, Cherry, and even Heirloom tomatoes, but the Roma’s are my favorite. They are sweet, hearty, and have just a little zest to them- so delicious. We had them on salads, on sandwiches, and in every other possible way imaginable but there were always dozens of tomatoes hanging on the vine.
