Slow cooker tomato sauce is rich, thick and hearty. A perfect Fall weather dish! Let the ease of a slow cooker do all the work for you, while you reap the rewards!


  • 16 ounces sausage (I used hot sausage)
  • 1 6 ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 14.5 ounce can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 28 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 whole bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • fresh basil for serving (if desired)
  • fresh parmesan cheese for serving (if desired)


  1. Add sausage to a medium skillet and cook until browned. (It does not need to be cooked through, just browned on the outside for extra flavor. You can skip this step if you do not have time.)
  2. Add browned sausage, along with the rest of the ingredients to a slow cooker.
  3. Cook sauce on low for 8 hours.
  4. Serve over pasta with basil and parmesan cheese for serving, if desired.
