Simple Marinara Sauce

marinara

This is my go-to marinara sauce recipe. I use it for all things Italian, and love to have it on hand to drizzle over zucchini ribbons with some Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs when I need a quick lunch or dinner. There’s only a few ingredients, so it’s easy to make and budget friendly. I use Pomi tomatoes, but you can also roast Roma tomatoes in the oven and then remove their skins and puree them in a food processor.

Simple Marinara Sauce

AUTHOR: Danielle Walker - AgainstAllGrain.com

SERVES: 4 cups

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Heat the oil in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat.
  2. Add the onions and saute until they are translucent.
  3. Remove the onions using a slotted spoon, keeping as much of the oil in the pot as possible.
  4. Add the remaining 6 ingredients and bring to boil.
  5. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 40 minutes.
  6. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

 

Tip for chopping the basil: Place the leaves on top of one another, and roll them up like a cigarette. Take your knife and chop the leaves horizontally. Then chop again into finer pieces.

    We also use our bottled tomatoes from our garden. Lots of work to plant, tend, harvest, and bottle; but the taste is worth it. I will have to try your tip for cutting basil.

    If I am using Roma tomatoes, how many would I use?

    I am not sure what the equivalent of Roma tomatoes would be because I haven’t tried it. Each box of Pomi is 26.46 oz.
