Marinara Sauce

Homemade marinara sauce is simple and simply delicious. Store-bought sauces inevitably have sugar or other unnecessary additives. This is a great recipe to double and, when cool, keep extra jars in the refrigerator (or freezer) for busy nights. Cook some pasta, add shrimp or quickly sauce some veggies, toss with marinara sauce and dinner is ready.

It also makes a lovely gift. Place in a jar, tie with a ribbon and a “homemade” or “made with love” note.

Adjust servings:
  1. Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until onion is translucent.
  2. Add garlic, oregano, basil, marjoram and crushed red pepper, stir and cook 2 - 3 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes and simmer gently, partially covered, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Mash with a potato masher. (I like it somewhat chunky, but if you prefer smooth, put it in blender or use immersion blender.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
