2-48oz cans crushed tomatoes in puree
1-15oz can diced tomatoes
2-3 cloves minced garlic (i bought a jar of already minced garlic)
1 cup red wine
1 package fresh pre-sliced mushrooms (i left out because i don't like)
1 chopped green bell pepper
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
Place all ingredients in a crock-pot on low and simmer for 6-8 hours. If you need faster just put on high or do on stove.

I must give credit where credit is due; I got this recipe from a nutritionist at the gym.

I love this sauce. I'm going to post 2 recipes that I got from the nutritionist that use this Marinara Sauce.
