A very simple but tasty marinar. Traditionally marinaras are not cooked a long time but I tend to let this simmer for a few hours, it makes the house smell yummy. I use crushed tomatoes and puree the onions because I have picky eaters but you can use chopped tomatoes and onions.

Great recipe! great tomatoes! Unfortunately Costco has decided to discontinue this product and is now only carrying non-San Marzano tomatoes. They have decided to make a bigger profit by selling Cento (not their San Marzano) for $.10 less that they sold the Nina.
