Sherry's Story

I have been making this sauce for years and my kids loved it. Now I make it for my clients and they all ask for it !!!


onion, finely chopped
carrots, peeled and diced
celery stalks, diced
cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp
italian seasoning
1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 can(s)
28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
black pepper
sugar, if needed

Directions Step-By-Step

Dice and mince all your veggies. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a non stick skillet and add your vegetables. Saute about 5-10 minutes until the vegetables begin to get soft. Add the crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper.Cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you want to make it a little bit spicier, add some crushed red pepper flakes. If you find that it is too acidic, you can also add some sugar. Serve over any pasta shape and enjoy. I make a double batch and freeze some of it when needed for any recipes calling for marinara sauce.
