Marinara Sauce

25 Sep

Sometimes jarred spaghetti sauce is a little disappointing when it comes to flavor. If I wanted to eat straight tomato sauce, that’s what I’d buy. It’s great when homemade can taste so much better and not really take much more effort!



1 (15 oz) can of crushed tomatoes in puree

1/4 cup water

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp olive oil

1/4 tsp lemon juice

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp oregano

1/8 tsp basil

1/8 tsp thyme

1/8 tsp garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
