Simple Shredded Pork Marinara over Spaghetti Squash - Gluten-Free

It's a very rare occasion in which everyone in the house boasts over my dinners.  No, really.  I know, I know...."Queen of the Crock Pot" yada yada!  LOL  I mean, everyone usually doesn't complain about dinner, but this time, they RAVED about it!

Here's how it went....I was out teaching an Essential Oils class and on my way home, my husband said "Nice job on dinner, honey!  The kids LOVED it!  I loved it too!  Good job!"
Well, that was nice to hear!
Fast forward to the next morning when Ella gets out of bed...
"Morning mom!  Did you really make that dinner last night?"
"Good morning Ella!  Yes, honey, I did."
"Wow, mom!  That was REALLY good!  Great job, mom!  Me and Gavin LOVED it!"

Here's the thing...I literally opened cans and dumped them in the slow cooker along with a chopped up onion....which my husband did for me.  I didn't add ANYTHING else to it.  LOL  I used all Dei Fratelli products, so apparently, they season better than me!  LOL!!!!!

I'll get to the recipe now so you too can "wow" your family with you mad cooking skills!

Servings: 12-14

4 oz. pork sirloin tip roast
26.46 oz. carton Dei Fratelli Truly finely chopped tomatoes
28 oz. Dei Fratelli crushed tomatoes, basil and herbs
28 oz. can Dei Fratelli chopped Italian tomatoes, herbs and olive oil
6 oz. can tomato paste
Spaghetti Squash (1 squash served 3 adults) - cooking instructions here
optional: regular pasta or gluten-free pasta if you desire

Directions: (use a 5 quart or larger crock for this recipe)
In your crock, place the pork sirloin tip roast.

Next, pour in the carton of Truly finely chopped tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, chopped Italian tomatoes and tomato paste.

Add the onions, then stir it up a bit.

Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or on HIGH for 3.5-4 hours.
Take the pork roast out, roughly shred it and stir it back through the sauce.
Serve it over Spaghetti Squash and ENJOY!

  1. Your article is very helpful thank you very much for sharing .

  2. Really good idea, but thinking to have a quick dish with this. Slice onions and pork (thin slices) then make a very quick stir fry with all ingredients, the pork might not be tender, but should be good to serve with pasta or rice too. :)

  3. just blogwalking.. Nice post and have a nice day :)
