Discover the rich flavors of our 'Better than Grandma's Homemade Pasta Sauce'—a crock pot recipe that brings together the hearty essence of Black Forest sausage and a medley of carefully selected ingredients. This sauce is a symphony of taste and convenience, slow-cooked to perfection to capture the essence of comfort in every bite. Crafted with care, each spoonful embodies Greenridge Naturals' commitment to quality ingredients and exceptional taste. 'Better than Grandma's Homemade Pasta Sauce' invites you to savor a delightful and nostalgic experience that redefines homemade comfort with the added charm of premium sausage, all while simmering effortlessly in your crock pot.



  1. Heat large skillet over medium heat and add diced Black Forest Sausages, Italian sausage and onion. Season with sea salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up the Italian sausages with a wooden spoon until the meat is browned and onion is soft about 6-9 minutes.

  2. Remove from skillet and transfer to crock pot. Add in remaining ingredients and give it a good stir until everything is combined.

  3. Set heat to LOW on crockpot and cook for 6-8 hours or 3-4 on HIGH. (we recommend the LOW setting, it allows for all the aromas and flavors to fully incorporate in the sauce.) Stir sauce once or twice an hour.

  4. If your sauce is soupy, add in a little bit more tomato paste and turn heat up to high and cook for 30 additional minutes until thickened. If your sauce is too thick, add 1/4 cup of water and continue cooking on low until you’ve reached your desired consistency.

    1. Remove bay leaf and serve on your favorite pasta. Enjoy!
