Healthy Marinara Sauce Recipe

I use this as a pizza sauce alone and as my base to several of my pasta sauces. This recipe makes 5 - 1/4 cup servings.
I also double the recipe and freeze into 1/4 servings sizes for quick meals when I don't have the time to make from scratch.


1 Onions, medium, chopped
2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Canned Whole Tomatoes no salt added, chopped 14.5 oz.
1 tsp. Double Concentrated Tomato Paste
1/4 tsp. Dried Basil
1/4 tsp. Dried Oregano
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper

In a saute pan heat olive oil over medium heat.
Add onion and garlic until onions are translucent.
Add the chopped tomatoes and juices from can and tomato paste.
Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Add the dried herbs and salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Transfer to blender and blend til smooth.
Freeze or transfer back pan and reheat.
