Spaghetti Sauce

1 onion chopped fine
1 large green pepper chopped fine
1 28 can Pastene Kitchen Ready tomatoes
1 6 ounce can Pastene tomato paste
2 cups water
4 garlic cloves minced
2 tsp oregano (dried)
2 tsp basil (dried)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp sugar

Place all in your crock pot and stir to combine all ingredients. Cook on low for 5 hours. Take cover off crock pot and cook uncovered for another hour so it will get nice and thick !
Add meat if you like, cooked ground beef or turkey.
I always add the sugar because it helps to cut the acidity of the tomatoes.
Enjoy !!

Anyone have a good source for Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce? I just realized that most of the jarred suaces have HFCS, which I'm trying to avoid.

Thanks!
