Overnight Marinara

Stuffed Shells  is my weekend plan. So tonight  my crockpot will be my Personal chef.

You will need 3 cans of tomatoes whole , ( I use San Marzano) , 3 tablespoons of Italian seasoning, 2 large sweet onions chopped, 5 Cloves of peeled garlic, 1 large red pepper chopped, and two stalks of celery chopped. When all the ingredients are in the crockpot, add 2 cups of white wine! Now here comes the magic…., set it to low and GO TO BED!

In the AM, Blitz them with a food processer or Blender.  You will have the most Amazing Flavorful NON meat sauce EVER!

If you want a Meaty Sauce, we will change it up a bit.  Start with A Soup pot on the Stove top.  You will add Olive oil, and onions to Sautee.  When they have become tender , add the garlic.  Now comes the Meat, Choose a great thick cut steak.  I prefer a nice piece of Knuckle Beef.  Brown each side and place in the crock pot.  Add all the ingredients as listed in the vegetable sauce.  Set to low and let it go overnight.  When you awake remove the meat and blend up the sauce.  When finished add the shredded meat back to the sauce.

Anyone Can Cook, You can make marinara like An Italian Grandma.  Well at least it will be close!
