Slow Cooker Marinara Sauce

This Slow Cooker Marinara Sauce is so easy to make and is really good. Just throw everything in your crock pot and forget about it. Well, for 8 hours. The flavors are really enhanced by the long, slow cooking process. And you don't even have to do anything to it but pour it in the crock pot and then eat it. That's my kind of recipe. :)

If you like a little meat in your sauce, cook the meat and throw it in the sauce right before eating. Italian sausage is my favorite.

3 (15 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 whole bay leaves
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. Just before serving, remove bay leaves and discard. Serve over your favorite pasta.
