Instructions

Heat the olive oil in a Cuisinart® 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, carrots, celery, and garlic; cook until the vegetables are softened, but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the basil, marjoram, and oregano; cook until the herbs are aromatic, 2 to 3 minutes longer.


Place the cooked vegetables in the ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Add the tomatoes, tomato purée, tomato paste, wine and salt to the slow cooker and stir to blend. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 8 hours and press Simmer; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed. For a smoother sauce, use a Cuisinart® Hand Blender or regular blender to purée the sauce to desired consistency.
