Description

A marinara sauce needs to be clean, smooth, fresh, herby, with hints of onion and garlic. I could never get it right until this recipe. This simple and delicious marinara can become your favorite too!

Ingredients

  • 1 can (28 Oz. Size) Whole Peeled Tomatoes, Preferably BPA-free
  • 1 whole Sweet Onion, Peeled And Cut In Half
  • 2 cloves (large) Garlic, Whole And Peeled
  • 1 teaspoon Dry Oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes (or To Taste)
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon (more Or Less To Taste) Brown Sugar

Preparation

In a sauce pan, combine all the ingredients except the brown sugar. Heat over medium to medium-high heat until boiling, then reduce to low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally, breaking up the whole tomatoes as you go.

Remove lid and continue to simmer uncovered for another 15 minutes.

Remove pan from heat, lift onions out of pot and save to re-purpose in other dishes.

Smash garlic cloves back into the sauce, then process sauce with a potato masher, a blender, or an immersion blender until all the big pieces of tomato have been broken down.

Taste for acidity and add brown sugar as needed, to taste. Add salt to taste.

Serve in your favorite Italian recipes.
