Marinara Sauce (simple) 09-Nov-2020

A very simple way to make marinara sauce that tastes better than jarred.


  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon minced or crushed garlic
  • 2 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried organo
  • 1/2 cup red wine


  1. heat oil in a small (2 quart) sauce pan
  2. add the garlic and cook until it turns golden
  3. remove the pan from the heat
  4. add the tomatoes, wine, basil, and garlic to the pan
  5. return the pan to the stove on medium heat, bring to a simmer
  6. lower the heat and let simmer for at least 30 minutes
  7. take the sauce off the heat and let cool
  8. using a stick blender, puree the sauce until all the chunks are gone


This would probably work just as well in an Instant Pot if you were pressed for time.

I imagine this would last a week in the fridge; freezer for up to 6 months.
