    This is a great marinara recipe made from garden fresh tomatoes. Since I don't have those year around I adapted a recipe found with home preserved tomatoes. This is fast, flavorful and my go to tomato sauce for pasta and mozzarella sticks.


    • 1 Small Onion, Minced
    • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
    • 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
    • 1 Quart Stewed Tomatoes, Undrained Or
    • 4 Cups Vine-Ripened Roma Tomatoes, Chopped
    • 6 Oz. Can Roasted Garlic Tomato Paste
    • 1 Cup Water
    • 1 Tsp. Granulated Sugar
    • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
    • 1 Tsp. Dried Oregano
    • 1 1/2 Tsp. Dried Basil
    • 1 Whole Bay Leaf


    1. In a large saucepan, sauté onion and garlic in oil. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, water, sugar, salt, oregano, basil and bay leaf. Bring to a boil.
    2. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf from sauce; set aside. Remove sauce from heat and use a hand blender to puree sauce. Return to stove, add bay leaf and bring to a boil, simmer until thickened. Remove bay leaf and serve with favorite pasta.
    3. Yield: 2 1/2 - 3 Cups.
