Homemade Marinara Sauce

This sauce can be used as both a Marinara and the base sauce for a meat sauce.


Olive oil

1 onion

2 -3 cloves garlic

Red wine (Chianti tastes great) 

2 28oz cans of crushed tomatoes 

1 15 oz can diced tomatoes, drained

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Flat leaf parsley


First cut your onion in half and dice it. I only used  half the onion, you can choose to add more to preference. 

Heat a large pot and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil once it’s heated. Place the onions in and cook till they are translucent about 5-10 minutes. You can also add salt and pepper to taste.

Then mince your garlic and add to the same pot and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly so the garlic does not burn. 

Once cooked add 1/2 cup of red wine and let it reduce to half at a high heat about 3 minutes. 

Now add you 2 cans of crushed tomatoes and 1 can of drained diced tomatoes. 

Add 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning and 1 tablespoon of chopped parsely. If desired you can add more parsley.

Stir and let it simmer on medium- low heat for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

This recipe will be available under to cooking section without the pictures.
