Homemade Marinara Sauce Recipe (Use For Slow Cooker Chicken Pasta Recipe)

Very simple only 5-ingredient sauce recipe.

Makes 2 cups (500 ml)

Ingredients: 28 oz (840 ml) can whole peeled tomatoes, 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and cut into half, 2 large garlic cloves, peeled, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) dried oregano leaves, a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, kosher salt

Instructions: In a medium saucepan, combine undrained tomatoes, onion halves, garlic, olive oil, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Mix well and bring the tomato mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Reduce the heat to low and continue simmering, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon to crush tomatoes, for about 45 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and discard cooked onion halves. Set aside. Using a slotted spoon, remove cooked garlic cloves from the sauce. Smash them with a fork, then return to the sauce.

Pour tomato sauce into a blender. Blend until smooth. Season with salt to taste. Transfer marinara sauce to the plastic container, then cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to use (for up to 4 days). Freeze for up to 6 months.

Use it for cooked pasta, or for the recipe above.
