My Marinara Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Junebug

This is what I use as a dipping sauce for my cheese nuggets and parmesan puffs. I also use it on pastas, chicken or about anything that calls for a red sauce. It freezes well.

This sauce has exceptional flavor, the seasonings are just right. However, this turned out too thin and watery for me. Next time, I will drain and reserve the juice from the tomatoes before whirling in the blender. Then I can add back a little more juice if I need to.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Puree tomatoes, with their juice and tomato sauce in a blender or processor.
  2. Heat oil and saute garlic a few minutes. Do not brown.
  3. Add all other ingredients and mix well.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. (I usually let it simmer an hour if I have the time.).
