Make your own tomato sauce!

Crockpot Tomato Sauce

4 tablespoons Olive oil
1 small Yellow onion, finely sliced
3 cloves Garlic, minced
3 pounds Fresh plum tomatoes, cored, peeled, seeded and pureed (enough to yield 4 cups about 20 medium tomatoes)
1/4 cup Minced fresh parsley OR 1 tablespoon Dried parsley
3 tablespoons Minced fresh basil OR 1 teaspoon Dried basil
1 tablespoon Minced fresh oregano OR teaspoon Dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Turn the slow-cooker on high, let it heat for 5 minutes, and add olive oil, onion and garlic. Stir and cover. The pot won’t get hot enough to
brown them. Cook for 1 hour, or until onion is soft and wilted. Uncover and add tomatoes, parsley, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and stir. Cook with the cover off for approximately 4 hours. The sauce is done when it is thick and not watery. Makes 4 cups.
