Homemade Winter Marinara Sauce

This is such a simple recipe and so dang tasty!!!  Use it on pasta, in lasagna, on spaghetti squash, in chili and soups.


 To achieve a great marinara sauce you have to start with good tomato sauce.  Eden is organic and BPA free, which is hard to find.  It is a bit spendy but the quality is phenomenal!  Trust me!!!

Start by chopping yellow onion and garlic then put in pan with 2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

Saute on med-high heat till soft and slightly golden. About 5-7 minutes

Add oregano, dry white or red wine and saute until wine reduces

Add the tomato sauce and pour filtered water into the jar then shake to get all the remaining sauce from jar, pour in and stir

Put the lid on and simmer for 1/2 hour on med-low heat

Add 1-2 more tablespoons of olive oil, sea salt and simmer for another 1/2 hour

* you can puree the sauce if you like a smooth texture
