Do NOT Copy

Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Debbi has too many tomatoes. What are we supposed to do with so many tomatoes you're wondering? When some of our friends were kind enough to share their tomatoes with me earlier this fall, this is one of the things I made with those tomatoes. It is a nice recipe to have because it does not require any canning at all. You can store any leftovers in the freezer and then just heat it and eat it.

The best part of it all was that Cheesehead agreed that he would eat it without meat. If you don't know him, that's huge! He's a carnivore, he doesn't usually eat any vegetable material without lots of meat involved. Even then it can only be very specific vegetables which usually involve only corn or fried potatoes.

It's a very flavorful recipe and makes the home smell wonderful as well. When Peanut walked into the house she exclaimed how good it smelled in the house, she couldn't wait to try it until she looked in the pot.

She is very picky too. She refuses to eat anything different than what she normally eats. She can even tell if I buy a different name brand of macaroni and cheese. It's just crazy, I think she gets that from her dad. If she can see the vegetables she won't eat them. If you have a child like her you will want to cool it down and run it through a blender before serving it to them.

Without further ado, here is the recipe! (This is an adaptation of a recipe I found online.)

Ingredients: 1 onion chopped, 2 garlic cloves minced, 1/2 green bell pepper chopped, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 12 cups chopped tomatoes, 1/4 cup white sugar, and dried oregano, dried basil, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper to taste.

In a slow cooker sautee onion, garlic, green pepper and vegetable oil until onion is transparent.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low for about 4 hours stirring frequently to prevent burning.

Allow the sauce to cool. Pour into freezer containers and store in freezer until ready to use.

If you'd like to add more color when you're ready to use it, you may wish to add a can of tomato paste. Heat, serve, and enjoy.
