Easy Italian Ketchup

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by rerak09

This is an easy recipe that takes plain ketchup to a whole new level. The herbs and spices give it a wonderful aroma and great taste. It works well with homemade potato wedges or any kind of french fries.

This is a great grown-up ketchup. I made a small amount just for me. Thanks rerak09 :) Made for PAC Fall 2011

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients except for the oregano in a saucepan and simmer on low heat to combine flavors. This should only take about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the oregano and cook for another 30 seconds. If the smell of the oregano is not coming through, add another 1/4 tsp of oregano and paprika and cook for another 30 seconds.
  3. If the ketchup gets too thick, you can add some water to thin it.
  4. Take the ketchup off the heat and cool before using.
