      This is a very good and easy recipe to make and do use the fresh ripe tomatoes vs. can - fresh is always better! I increased the garlic to 3 Tbsp and the basil to 1/3 C also with a tad of jalapeno juice to give it a slight kick. I'm sure that I'll make this again soon.

      I had picked 10 lbs of ripe tomatoes and decided to make my very own homade marinara sauce. I searched many recipes and since I liked the idea of not having to seed and peel the tomatoes, I picked this one. In reality, I think it added more flavor to the sauce. Boy was I blown away! This recipe is delicious; best I've tasted and even my husband and 2 1/2 year old son loved it. Being a garlic lover, I just added another tbsp more and since I didn't have fresh basil, I used the dried variety. Works just as well. I served some of it up tonight using diced up turkey sausage and it was absolutely out of this world. I recommend this recipe to anyone who is a picky tomato sauce eater; like my husband! By the way, I pureed the marinara prior to adding any meat and saved the remainder; I plan on making Chicken Parmesan later! A definate keeper in our arsenal!

      Very good and yummy. :) This brings out the flavor of herbs and tomatoes nicely, so I recommend using ripe tomatoes and fresh herbs. I like garlic, so I used about 2 Tbs and a little more basil, 1/3 cup. I used canned tomatoes and 1/4 t pepper. I added a whole jalapeno for 10 minutes, then removed it, I like the subtle hotness. Thanks for posting.
