Marinara Sauce

Don't tone down the red pepper flakes. This sauce is just not the same without them.

28 oz can crushed tomatoes, undrained
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cloves garlic, finely minced

Combine all ingredients in a medium size saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for at least 30 minutes.
Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

  1. Yumm, this looks delicious! I need to stop being lazy and start making homemade marinara sauce. It's so simple and I really have no excuse for using the jarred stuff!

  2. I always like to cook a bulk and store the food in freezer and fridges as backup dinners on my "busy" days. This basic marinara sauce is definitely very handy and will cook this sauce in bulk for storage too.

  3. Nothing like homemade marinara sauce!

  4. It's strange, i don't like tomatoes, but I love tomato sauces: pizza sauce, pasta sauce, tomato paste, ketchup. This marinara sauce looks like a total winner. Love it!

  5. this looks fabulous!
