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


*This recipe is good to freeze in batches.



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.


Try adding or removing any ingredients to create your own recipe! Enjoy!
