Making homemade marinara doesn’t take long and is fairly easy. To me it beats opening a bottle of Ragu and dumbing down your masterpiece. Whether its for your pizza, ravioli or just to dip a few bread sticks, if you have the time, make your own sauce. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few good bottled sauce out there but the sense of accomplishment makes your own sauce taste better.

  1. 1In a medium sized saucepan, cook the garlic in olive oil over medium heat for 2-4 minutes. Do not allow the garlic to brown.
  2. 2Add tomatoes and simmer while using a slotted spoon to crush the tomatoes until sauce has thickened, 20-25 minutes
  3. 3Stir in basil and parmesan cheese. Salt to taste and serve.
