Crock Pot Red Sauce

Posted on 27 February 2013 by noelskitchen

I can truly never go wrong when it comes to pasta around our house. Lazy Weeknight Lasagna is always a favorite. One recipe that we love is this red sauce. It’s simple to make and delicious. I don’t really have a “traditional” red sauce recipe, I use the normal base of ingredients but like to try adding a new ingredient in every once in a while. This time, I decided to add some carrots into the batch to tweak the recipe a bit. This recipe has a bit of good flavor and you can add more to suit by adding in some Italian sausage! I like to make red sauce in a big batch – at least double or triple the ingredients and freeze it in quart size portions.
