I have nothing against canned pasta sauce. In fact, the Meijer brand is really quite delicious. I am known for frequently jazzing up the jarred variety with various vegetables or sauteed garlic or sausage, but sometimes I have a craving for an true homemade variety. (True as it can be when you're using canned tomatoes and a crockpot, that is.) This slow cooked sauce smells delicious all afternoon and goes together in minutes.
