This marinara is easy and quick to make, AND delicious.

  • 1 can crushed tomatoes

  • a little tomato paste

  • olive oil

  • onion and garlic puree in processor

  • sausage (optional)

  • red wine (optional)

  • fresh basil, oregano, bay leaf chopped

1. heat a generous amount of olive oil

2. when olive oil is nice and hot add sausage, onion and garlic. Sauté

3. pour in a little red wine

4. When sausage has a nice brown to it, pour in the crushed tomatoes and add a little tomato paste

5. stir constantly and  add chopped herbs

let sit for a little while for flavors to mix together.

-tip- you can make this with just olive oil, tomatoes and basil. The key is to use a generous portion of olive oil and make sure it is really hot when you pour in the tomatoes
