Classic Marinara Sauce

Serves 8
Garden To Table Recipes


  • 32 organic Roma tomatoes
  • ½ c. olive oil
  • ½ c. fresh basil
  • 1 ½ heads garlic
  • 1 tbsp. Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. garlic salt
  • 2 cans tomato paste


Cut an x at the base of each tomato. Blanch tomatoes until they soften, about 5 minutes. When cool enough to touch, peel and chop tomatoes.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large stockpot. Add basil, garlic, salt, and red pepper. Sauté over medium-high heat for 4 minutes. Don't let garlic brown or it will become bitter. Add tomatoes, light brown sugar, and garlic salt, and cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes. Add tomato paste.

Blend with immersion blender until sauce reaches desired texture.
