Homemade Marinara Sauce

This is Food Network’s Giada de Laurentiis’ recipe for Simple Tomato Sauce. I always make a batch of this whenever I have the time and store it in the fridge or in the freezer.

This is great for those time that I’m too busy (or more likely,too lazy) to cook, I just cook some pasta, heat some of this sauce and maybe just add some tuna or ham and voila, dinner is served!

Instructions

  • In a large casserole pot, heat oil over medium high heat.

  • Add tomatoes, basil, and bay leaves and simmer covered on low heat for 1 hour or until thick.
  • Remove bay leaves and check for seasoning.
  • If sauce still tastes acidic, add unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time to round out the flavors.
  • Add half the tomato sauce into the bowl of a food processor.
  • Process until smooth.
  • Continue with remaining tomato sauce.
  • If not using all the sauce, allow it to cool completely and pour 1 to 2 cup portions into freezer plastic bags.
  • This recipe will yield 6 cups of tomato sauce and will freeze up to 6 months.
