Tricia’s tomato sauce


I am so proud of this recipe! I looked off of a recipe on for the basic how-to, but I changed around the ingredients enough that I feel confident in calling it my own! And for the record, this is the first recipe I’ve created on my own, so I am thrilled. Plus, it tastes great, too!

I had quite a bit of tomato puree and tomato paste left over from a recipe earlier in the week, so I made this tomato sauce to use it up.


1 tbsp. olive oil
5 cloves garlic, minced (we really like garlic)
3 – 3 1/2 tbsp. tomato paste
14 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained (I used Hunt’s seasoned with garlic, oregano and basil)
about 20 ounces of tomato puree (it’s all I had left of the 28 ounce can)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tstp. white sugar 

Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan and saute garlic.

Combine all ingredients in crockpot and stir. Cook on low for 3 hours.
