Slow Cooker Vegan/Vegetarian Sunday Sauce

This had my meat loving coworkers drooling! 

-pasta of choice
-1/2 green pepper chopped
-1/2 yellow onion chopped
-1 small package of mushrooms chopped
-1 large can of crushed tomatoes
-olive oil
-1 package of beyond meat meatless crumbles
-3 cloves of garlic chopped
-2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
-1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
-a generous sprinklings of nutritional yeast

To make:
Sautee chopped garlic, onions, peppers and mushrooms in oil until onions are translucent and add beyond meat crumbles.  Cook until defrosted and slightly browned.  In a slow cooker add a layer of sauce and then 1/2 of the veggie mix on top.  Top this with seasonings and nooch.  Add another layer of sauce and top with the remaining veggies and more sauce.  Cook on low for a minimum of 4 hours.  I cooked mine for 8 hours. 

Sauce in the crock pot after being cooked for 8 hours.
I used Banza pasta with the sunday sauce and it was amazing!  It tastes great and has a ton of fiber and protein.  I found some at Fresh Market and I will definitely be back to get more!
