Homemade Marinara Sauce

A classic & essential recipe for your cookbook!

Growing up, my parents rarely bough pre-made pasta sauce. As a kid, I always noticed the difference between the times that they bought the pre-made pasta sauce and the times that they made it themselves. The homemade version always tasted better.

Since then, I’ve been making my own pasta sauces. It’s not so complicated and the end result always yields a pasta that begs for second helpings.

Here’s how I make it:

Homemade Marinara Sauce

4 c crushed tomatoes
1 white onion
2 garlic cloves
1 TBSP dried oregano
1 TBSP dried basil
1 TBSP olive oil
salt & pepper (to taste)

Preparation:

Sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil.

Add the fresh herbs and stir until well combined.

Pour in the crushed tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Allow the sauce to simmer on medium low heat for 20-30 minutes.

Serve with your favorite pasta for a simple and delicious meal.

Guten Appetit!
