Super Simple Slow Cooker Sauce
Getting a healthy and budget-friendly meal on the table every night of the week can feel like an overwhelming task – we get it. That’s why we’ve designed these easy weeknight dinners, starting with a “mother” recipe (our Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce) that can be used night after night. You’ll notice that a lot of our staple ingredients make multiple appearances throughout the week for easier shopping and grocery budgeting, too.
A good tomato sauce is a pantry staple, but most store-bought versions are loaded with sugar and salt, plus so much garlic and basil that they can only be used on pasta. Not ours! This sauce is beautifully balanced and not overwhelmingly spiced, so you can give it a new personality every night of the week with just a few added ingredients.
Make this slow cooker sauce ahead of time, so you have it ready to go for the week. Let it simmer in the slow cooker on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, or whip it up on the stovetop: Simply let the sauce cook on medium-low heat for about 45 to 60 minutes or until it reaches your desired consistency.
