15-Minute Marinara Sauce
This 15-Minute Marinara has endless uses... homemade pizzas, your favorite pasta dish, to pour over over meatballs, or use for dipping with your favorite garlic bread. It also stores well in the fridge for up to several days. Win win!
What you will need:
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup sweet onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning
¼ tsp each salt, pepper and sugar
Pinch of red pepper flakes
This recipe makes enough for about four-five personal pizzas so double or triple if you need more, are making a pasta dish, or want to store some for a later time.
In a small saucepan, heat oil on medium-high heat. Add onion and saute for 3-4 minutes, or until slightly translucent. Add in garlic, salt and pepper and cook an additional minute.
Turn heat to medium, pour in tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, sugar and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, then turn to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes (or longer if you prefer), stirring occasionally.
Dinner idea: top some naan bread with this sauce + cheese + your favorite toppings and cook @ 400 for 10 minutes.
Easy peasy! Enjoy, y'all! xo
