Best Marinara Sauce Yet and Awards!!!
I cannot believe that this is my 100th Post!!! Did I really post 100 times? Oh my....I can't believe it. It sounds like so much but really I don't feel like it is at all!
First off I would like to thank Pamela of Cookies With Boys and Katherine of Smoky Mountain Cafe for some wonderful awards. I would like to share both of these with all my fellow bloggers who enjoy visiting my site. Thank you both so much for these awards. I am always soooo happy to receive them!!!
Today's recipe is for a marinara sauce. Where is the picture? My brain went on "vacation" while I made this and I forgot to take of picture of it. If it wasn't a really good sauce I wouldn't even bother posting it. But it was excellent. I rarely try different tomato sauces since I have been making the same one for years that my grandma used to make but I wanted to try a plain marinara, something without any meat and this really hit the spot. I found it over at allrecipes. I've been finding quite a few really good recipes there lately! Enjoy!
2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
4 tablespoons fresh parsely, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
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
In a food processor place tomatoes, tomato paste, chopped parsley, minced garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.
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. (I also always add a pinch of sugar to counter the acidity from the tomatoes.)
Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally
