To make this recipe more home made tasting is very easy and alot cheaper and awsome.
1 large can italian tomatoes chopped
1 large can crushed tomatoes or puree
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 sm onion chopped
fresh or dried basil
1 stick butter
1 can chicken stock or 1 cup
1/4 c. dry wine (opt)
oragano (I prefer just basil and tyme as do most italians)
you can add meat balls or add apx 1/4 pound veal or ground pork and ground round or hamburger. (Do not brown this just add it to the other ingrediants raw into the slow cooker and stir to break up any chunks and enjoy at the end of the day the sauce will be thick and very tasty and home made. It will be even better the next day. If too thick add more chicken stock or water. It can also be frozen. Use Italian plum or just Italian it will tell you on the label do not use stewed tomatoes. Let me know what you think.
You can cook it in a slow cooker or I have even put it in a roasting pan in an oven set on low setting or on top of the stove uncovered be sure to stir often
