My Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce

I have a friend who lives in Philly and for the longest time I thought she was super weird for serving gravy on her spaghetti.  It took me a while to realize that to some people “gravy” is spaghetti sauce.  So, you can call it gravy, or spaghetti, or red sauce, but whatever you call it, it’s super easy to make and cheap to boot!

So, get ready to take notes, bust out your crockpot, and head to Costco (or BJ’s or Sam’s, or whatever you have).  Let’s get started.

Crockpot spaghetti sauce (a Sarah original)
1 big ass can of crushed tomatoes (the big big big can!)
4 cans of organic diced tomatoes
4 cans of organic tomato paste
1 organic onion, diced
a big grip of diced parsley and basil (I got this from my garden, but you can use dried)
2 tblsp of dried oregano
1/2 tsp baking soda
salt and pepper to taste
garlic, garlic, and more garlic

Pour everything in the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Allow to cool completely, and divide in to freezer-proof containers.  I use freezer proof quart sized Ziplocs and get enough for 6 meals (dinner for 3 + 2 lunches for the next day).  You could freeze in pint canning jars as long as they’re wide mouth.

Bon appetit!

  1. That sounds so easy! Lots of spaghetti sauce recipes have tons of ingredients but yours sounds so simple. I have got to try this one, for sure.

  2. i had to commnet – I ADORE your don’t be a lazy ass label!!

  3. Total cost?

  4. I haven’t added it up, but I’m guessing less than $8 for about 6 quarts.

  5. just found your blog and loving it already found tons of things I want to do! Thanks!

  6. I love all your recipes but I hate it that your language is so nasty..I don’t use bad language and I am sad having to save the recipes into my pinterest for others to see with your bad words in them for others to see..TW..I hope this doesn’t offend you in any way..

    • It doesn’t offend me in any way because while I enjoy people reading my blog, I write for myself. Editing who I am would be disingenuous to me and you. Some people don’t like it, and some do, but in the end, I present my true self instead of some version of me.

  7. This sounds delish! Just for a little more clarification, when you say a “BIG, BIG, BIG-ASS CAN,” are we talking the institutional or food-service size cans? Or maybe the 28-ounce cans? Thankee!
