This marinara sauce is one of those recipes that I turn to again and again. I adore a good homemade marinara sauce, but have to be honest. I don’t want to have to cook it for hours for it to taste just right.

I like simple and quick recipes so I can start supper as we’re finishing up from our busy day of school and all of the other activities and still have a hot, delicious supper on the table.

I know I could plan way in advance and make the long-cooking marinara sauce, but that’s just not how I roll most days.

So, if it’s not how you roll either, then this marinara sauce is perfect for you, too!

It can be our little secret.

As a matter of fact, you might want to get enough ingredients to double this recipe! I like to keep a jar or two of it in my refrigerator we love it so much!

I prefer my marinara sauce to still have bits of tomato in it, but if you prefer a smoother marinara sauce, you can simply blend with your immersion blender until it reaches the consistency you prefer, it usually only takes a minute or two. If you don’t have an immersion blender, a standard blender or food processor will also do the trick!
