Marinara the Homemade Way =]


I have to fidget with this recipe a little bit. I originally used this Recipe and wasn’t too pleased. It had a weird flavor which could have been just because I cooked it all day in my crock pot, but it also needed a little more seasoning. I didn’t like the combo of balsamic and brown sugar so next time I’m just going to use a crap load of basil and garlic as that is all I added to it afterwards.



1-28oz can Crushed tomatoes

2T Tomato paste

1/2 onion, diced

1/2c Hot water

1/4t Dried oregano

2T Dried basil

2T Minced garlic

1. Put diced onion and hot water in microwave safe bowl and microwave 2 minutes.

2. Add all ingredients (including water and onion) to crock pot or stove pot and cook for a while. On the stove, 30ish minutes and 2-3 hours in the crock on low.

3. Add more basil or salt if desired

This goes great with Stromboli!
