This is a good sauce for pasta! Recipe is from Woman's Day. Plan ahead: Use half the sauce for 1 lb pasta, then refrigerate the rest up to 1 week, or freeze.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1⁄4 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- Heat oil in a saucepan.
- Add onions and garlic; cook 4 minutes.
- Stir in remaining ingredients.
- Simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes.
This is perfect for a quick weeknight meal! 10 minutes - that's it!! Did add a bit of crushed red pepper to add some spice! Thanks Lainey! :)
This sauce is marvelous for the little time it takes to prepare. I usually use Giada's Simple Marinara Sauce but I didn't have any left in the freezer and there wasn't enough time to make a batch up. So I came to Zaar and found this recipe. I added some basil and a bay leaf and pureed it so the kids (and husband) couldn't find any chunks of tomatoes. I will be using this marinara sauce to prepare Spinach and Mushroom Pasta Bake tonight. Thank you Lainey6605.
Made this up in a flash last night. Took lots of tastes...yummy. I will be using it in two recipes this week. It is great to have a sauce that is made at home to use. I made two little changes. I used tomato sauce instead of crushed tomaoes (simply because ididn't have any crushed tomatoes) I also added a little bit of oregano. Don't judge this sauce before it cooks a little. The flavors need a little time to blend in. In fact I think making it a 20 minutes sauce and lettingit simmer some is a good idea. Thanks Lainey...this will be my go to from now on.
