Homemade Marinara Sauce

Marinara sauce is a staple item that pretty much every household always has. My husband has never been a fan of red sauce but he was really impressed with this sauce as were the rest of us. It makes a lot and we have enjoyed it on spaghetti, in lasagna and in meatball casserole.

  • 3 medium onions (I used sweet)
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 (28oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda



Peel and finely chop the onions.


In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the chopped onions and saute for about 20 minutes or until the onions are a deep golden color.


Turn the heat down to medium low and add the minced garlic. Saute until the garlic is golden. About 3-5 minutes.


Add the remaining ingredients and simmer on low for 2 hours.
