Quick Marinara Sauce
What's your Take?

Here's a great-tasting tomato sauce you can use with stuffed breads, pizza, and pasta. (If you like a thicker sauce, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of tomato paste when you add the crushed tomatoes.)

What you'll need

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes in puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon each dried basil and oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

How to make it

  1. Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepan. Stir in the chopped onion and sauté it for about 8 minutes, until translucent. Stir in the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds.

  2. Stir the remaining ingredients into the pan, then cover the sauce and bring it back to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook the sauce for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Makes about 4 cups.
