Made in No Time Marinara Sauce

Sometimes you find yourself in a pickle.

You’re making pasta, but you have no pasta sauce.

You don’t feel like cooking dinner but your significant other calls telling you he’s bringing dinner guests. Or you forget you’re having company over because of those long nights at work.

You don’t want a jar because of everything that’s in a jar and well there’s people coming over. You want to make something wholesome.

Ingredients in a jar: Diced Plum Tomatoes (Plum Tomatoes, Tomato Juice, Calcium Chloride, Citric Acid), Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Onions, Olive Oil, Garlic, Sugar, Salt, Spices, Soybean Oil, Dehydrated Parsley Flakes, Canola Oil, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors Contains Soybeans

Have no fear, this 6 ingredient, most of which is already in your house I bet, you can make something amazing in no time.

Everyone should have a go – to sauce.


Marinara Sauce

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
28oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian dried seasoning


Add the olive oil to a medium sized saucepan over medium heat.

Add the garlic and crushed pepper.

When the pepper snaps and the garlic sizzles, stir in the crushed tomatoes.

Season the sauce with salt and Italian seasoning. Cook for five minutes

Makes 28 oz jar. Per 1/2 cup. Calories: 73, Carbohydrates: 9 grams, Fiber: 2 grams, Protein: 2 grams.

No sugar, whatsoever. Why? Because we didn’t add any. This is what happens when you make food using pure ingredients!

This is too easy to make.

The taste is pretty amazing. The garlic, the red pepper, compliments the tomatoes. The herbs creates a flavor profile that screams Italy.

It’s great for pastas, as a dip for tortellini, cheese sticks, or ravioli, pizza sauce.

What’s great is you can make this in large batches and jar it for later. That way you will always have some on hand if you need a dip for an appetizer when company comes over unexpectedly. Or for those late night munchies after the bar when friends are over to keep the party going.
