Slow cooker Pasta Sauce

This is an easy sauce that cooks all day in your slow cooker. When I make sauce, I make it to last for several meals so this recipe makes a lot. It takes up every inch of my 6 QT slow cooker. If you have a smaller slow cooker, just reduce the amount of tomato sauce you add.

Slow cooker Pasta Sauce

1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 carrots, shredded
2 15oz cans Italian diced tomatoes
1 15 oz crushed tomatoes
3 32oz can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1/4 C Italian seasoning
2 Bay leaves
2 TBSP basil
2 tsp salt

Brown ground beef. Add onion, carrot and garlic. Cook 3-5 minutes until onion is translucent.

Add Italian and crushed tomatoes. Simmer 15 minutes.

Add beef mixture to the slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high 4 hours.  Serve with your favorite pasta.

I'd love to know what you think... please leave me a comment. thanks!
