Ingredients

  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, water or vegetable stock
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes (800 g)
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste (optional)
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 6 fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  1. Heat some oil, water or vegetable stock in a large pot and cook the garlic and onion over medium-high heat until golden brown. Add more oil, water or stock if needed.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients (crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, pepper and oregano), except the basil leaves. Stir and cook over medium-high heat covered for 10 minutes. Then simmer uncovered for another 10 minutes.
  3. Add the fresh basil leaves, stir and cook uncovered for another 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and use immediately or keep cool leftovers in a sealed container for up to a week.
  5. We served our marinara sauce over some pasta, but feel free to serve it with your favorite dishes: pizza, lasagna, meatballs, stuffed eggplant, stews or even like a dip.

Notes

  • Feel free to blend your marinara sauce if you prefer a smoother texture.
  • Fresh tomatoes are also okay.
  • Add your favorite veggies, herbs and spices.
