Nothing beats homemade sauce! This easy slow-cooker pasta pomodoro recipe uses basic pantry ingredients to take  pasta night to the next level. Canned San Marzano tomatoes marinate with olive oil and balsamic in the slow cooker for a bright, acidic, and surprisingly fresh-tasting sauce. For a heartier meal, serve with meatballs and accompany with a green salad and fresh bread.
