Homemade Marinara Sauce

There is NO reason to purchase jars of sauce when what you can make yourself in no time tastes SO much better!!


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans diced tomatoes in puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon
  • Add the oil to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the onion, garlic, basil, oregano and pepper and saute for a few minutes. Stir in the crushed and diced tomatoes, red pepper flakes and the bouillon. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.

    This can be made ahead and placed into jars and kept in the fridge for a few days.  Or you can put it in freezer bags or ice cube trays and freeze for future use.
