Simple Marinara Sauce
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 1 1/2 to 2 hours
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 (28-oz.) can diced tomatoes (preferably San Marzano)
1 cup hearty red wine (optional)
2 tablespoons Italian herb seasoning blend
1 teaspoon sugar or to taste
1 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
2 bay leaves
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Add a little water to taste if you prefer a thinner sauce, or cook uncovered to thicken to use as a pizza sauce. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
