Cooking tomato sauce in pan

Have you ever made your own marinara sauce?

I didn’t ever even think to make my own until I was given a bunch of freshly picked tomatoes from my neighbors’ garden! I usually make homemade tomato soup, but decided to try something different this time and instead opted for marinara sauce! The recipe is super easy, and so yummy. You’ve got to give it a try!

Ingredients:

12 cups of blanched, peeled tomatoes
2 large onions – chopped
7 cloves of garlicĀ – minced
2 Tbsp. dried Italian seasonings of your choice (basil, oregano, thyme, etc)
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. olive oil

Heat the oil in a pot. Add the onions and cook slowly until they are golden and begin to caramelize. Then, add the garlic and dried herbs. Cook for about 5 minutes. Then, add the tomatoes.

Once everything is in and mixed well, bring to a simmer and let it cook on low for about 2 hours. Afterwards, puree the mixture with an immersion blender, or carefully add to your blender, a couple of cups at a time.

There you go! Easy, healthy and yummy!
