After realizing I still had to large jars of stewed tomatoes from my Mother-in-law I decided to search for a recipe for Marinara Sauce to try.  Here is what I found.  I did write in my variations!


  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes ( I used a 26oz jar of stewed tomatoes from my MIL’s garden)
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste ( I omitted this)
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley ( I just used an Italian Seasoning since I didn’t have any)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced ( I used 3)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/2 cup white wine ( I used Chicken Broth)
  • Sprinkle of Crushed Red Peppers ( I added this)


  1. In a food processor place Italian tomatoes, tomato paste, chopped parsley, minced garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat saute the finely chopped onion in olive oil for 2 minutes. Add the blended tomato sauce and white wine.
  3. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

It was a huge hit in our home.  My husband and I prefer a lighter sauce so once I added the burger to this it was perfect.  I will be making it again today or tomorrow and freezing it for next time.

I mark this as SUCCESS!
