Skinny Crockpot Sausage Pasta Sauce

I love my crockpot during the hot summer months.  This sauce was really good...I am kicking myself for not doubling it and freezing a batch.  Oh well, good thing it is easy!

Skinny Crockpot Sausage Pasta Sauce
From:  Skinny Taste

  • 1 lb lean chicken Italian sausage, casings removed (Italian pork sausage is great to...just not "skinny")
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 28 oz tuttorosso crushed tomatoes
  • fresh cracked pepper

Brown the sausage in a large skillet, breaking up any large pieces with a wooden spoon. When sausage is browned, drain if needed and add to crock pot.
 skillet with a paper towel and set flame to high; when hot 
 garlic and 
 until golden but do not burn; 
tomatoes and garlic to crock pot along with fresh cracked pepper.
 on low for 6-8 hours.
If you wish, take an immersion blender and blend the sauce a 2-3 seconds to break the sausage up into smaller pieces to combine with the sauce.
