Delicious! i cooked in the crock pot all day on low and came home to a wonderful sauce. I do like some chunks, so I added a can of diced tomatoes to my sauce. I also had to guess what the conversions were, as I'm in the US, and I translated them to crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. - 07 May 2013
