Magic Crockpot Pasta Sauce

The magic in this recipe comes from the way you can use pretty much anything for the ‘vegetables’, so can use it for crisper clean-out day. What I like to do is chop up leftover vegetables and the “less desirable” bits, like broccoli & mushroom stems, and freeze them. I usually have several bags of assorted veg in the freezer – in fact I developed this recipe specifically because you can only eat so much Magic Black Bean Soup.
