Garden Fresh Marinara Sauce

Garden Fresh Marinara Sauce is a blend of vegetables from my garden. It's easy and your family will love it.

 

Friends, Italian food is not a strong point for me, but you wouldn't know that if you tried my marinara sauce. I had a huge batch of tomatoes and I wanted to create something that wouldn’t take forever to make. I came up with this recipe, and was surprised by the fresh rich flavors of the garden tomatoes, bell peppers, basil, oregano, and parsley. –Deidre

Instructions

In a Pujols Kitchen Large Caldero, fill with water to boil the tomatoes for 15 minutes. Skin included.

 

In small bunches, with a Pujols Kitchen Solid Spoon, add the cooked tomatoes into a blender and blend until completely liquefied.

 

Discard extra water from boiled tomatoes.  Using a sieve, pour the blended tomatoes back into the large caldero.

 

In a blender, add basil, bell peppers, onion, garlic, thyme, oregano, black pepper, and red wine vinegar.

 

Pour the blended mixture into the caldero with the tomato mixture and stir.

 

Add the 2 bay leaves, tomato paste, sugar, and salt.

 

Cook for about an hour and a half (90 minutes).

 

∗Add water if you wish to thin out the sauce.

 

*Add parsley at the very end.
