Homemade Marinara Sauce

A good marinara sauce can really take an average meal and kick it up a notch. The problem is the good, tasty marinara sauces are so expensive and (like most things in the store now) they are full of ingredients I can’t even begin to pronounce. This homemade, marinara is so quick and easy you’ll never want or have to go back to the jarred version again.

I have been making this for a while now and I love it! It’s great for pizza, pasta, lasagna or to stand alone as a dip for bread sticks, stromboli, cheese sticks and more.

Marinara Sauce


1 teaspoon olive oil
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
28 oz can of tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon of basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
Salt/Pepper to taste


1.  Heat olive oil in a medium pot on medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.

2. Add remaining ingredients and cook for additional 1-2 minutes before turning the heat down.

3. Turn the heat down to low and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.

Yields 2-2.5 cups

This recipe is so quick and you can easily double the batch to put away extras in the freezer. This week I quadrupled the batch and put away 10 cups for meals. I froze them in 1 and 2 cup packs so that I can easily pull out the amount I need for my meals. On the meal plan for this month, I’ll be using it for Roasted Vegetable Lasagagna, Pizza Pasta Bake, Chicken Parmesan and a Hot Pizza Dip! Plus, I’ll have some leftover for next month!
