Jana Glass' Marinara Sauce

I got this from my friend's blog--the marinara she made looked so fabulous, we all demanded the recipe!

2 Tablespoons Oil
3/4 Cup Onion, minced (1 med. onion)
1 Tablespoon Parsley
1 Large Clove Garlic, minced
4 Cups Tomato Purée, fresh
1-2 Tablespoons Basil
1 teaspoon Salt

1. Sauté onions until transluscent over medium heat.

2. Add parsley, garlic and cook about one minute.

3. Add tomatoes, basil and salt

4. Simmer until you have a sauce-like consistency. Stir occasionally so it doesn't stick.

Tips from Jana:
  • 20 Roma tomatoes is about 8 Cups Tomato Purée
  • Adding celery is good
  • Experiment to your own taste with levels of onion, garlic & sugar
  • Romas make for a good sauce because they're not as runny as other tomatoes.
