This is truly a Slow Cooker marinara, as you don't have to brown anything before hand. So easy and flavorful, I hope I can tempt you into making your sauce at home if you're not doing so already.
If desired, turn it into a meat sauce by browning a pound of ground beef or bison together with half a pound of Italian sausage. Drain off the fat, and add it with the rest of the ingredients.
For a mushroom sauce, very thinly slice two packages of mushrooms and add them to the crock.
Stir the ingredients together in a large Crockpot. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours, stirring occasionally.
Using good quality canned tomato products makes a big difference in this sauce. Also, If you have time, rubbing the leafy spices between the palms of your hands helps release their flavors.
