This recipe came with my crockpot and I just tried it tonight for dinner. The sauce came out great, and there is plenty for leftovers and to freeze. Yummy!

I figured out the points to the best of my ability, but was unsure about the canned tomatoes and tomato paste, so feel free to correct my points estimate.


1.5 pounds lean ground chuck, browned and drained of fat (24 points)
1 cup chopped onion (0 points)
2 cloves garlic (0 points)
1 can (14.5 oz.) chopped italian tomatoes (0 points?)
2 cans (6 oz.) tomato paste (0 points?)
3 cans (14.5 oz.) stewed tomatoes, undrained (0 points?)
1 bay leaf (0 points)
2 stalks celery, chopped (0 points)
1 tsp. salt (0 points)
2 tsp. dried oregano (0 points)
2 tbsp. italian seasoning (0 points)
1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves (0 points)

Put all ingredients in crockpot, except for 3 cans stewed tomatoes. Use blender or food processor to puree stewed tomatoes, then add to crockpot. Stir thoroughly. Cover and cook on low heat for 8-10 hours.

I figured the whole recipe at 24 points, and it makes about 6 cups. So depending on the points that use for the tomatoes, I think it's probably about 4-5 points per serving. (I like a lot of sauce on my pasta).

Feel free to correct my points here.
