Can I reuse cooking sauce from last time when slow cooking?

It sounds terrible, but I can't think of a good reason not to try this. Am I not thinking this through?
My new favorite thing to cook in my slow cooker is sweet italian sausage. Add onion chunks, bell pepper strips, cover with a big jar of tomato sauce, and enjoy the tasty magic after 6 hours on low.
I don't find that I eat much of the cooking sauce though, so I have about a quart leftover each time. Can I freeze this, and thaw and reuse the next time?
