Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce

It is always very hot where I live when the tomatoes and peppers are ripe, so I constantly seek out crock pot recipes. Here is one I use for spaghetti sauce.


  • 4 onions, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. dried basil
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 chopped, seeded bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 16 cups (5 lbs.) chopped tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. black pepper


Dump and stir! I use a 6 quart pot. Low for 7 1/2 hours. If it needs thickening, I add 1 small tomato paste towards the end.

Source: I found this at and have played with the recipe several times, but this is the basic version that I love.
