Ingredients to make Best Homemade Marinara Sauce

  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 3 to 4 green chillies/jalapenos
  • 2 cups of readymade tomato puree
  • ½ cup red onions, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • ¼ cup of finely chopped bell pepper/capsicum
  • ½ cup of finely chopped mushrooms
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

How to make Best Homemade Marinara Sauce

  1. Wash tomatoes, chop them roughly and blend along with green chillies to a fine paste. Keep aside.
  2. Finely chop onions, bell pepper and mushrooms. Heat olive oil in a deep saucepan. Once the oil is hot, add chopped onions. Sauté on medium high heat till the onions are soft and slightly browned.
  3. Add chopped garlic and fry again for a few seconds. Stir in chopped mushrooms and bell pepper and sauté again for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the pureed tomatoes and green chillies along with readymade tomato puree.
  4. Add the Italian seasoning, chilly flakes, black pepper, salt to taste and sugar and mix well. Bring to a boil on high and once it starts to boil, lower the heat and simmer on medium low for about 10 to 15 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  5. Once you get the consistency you want, remove from heat, cool, bottle and refrigerate. Homemade marinara sauce can be served with any pasta, lasagna rolls, over pizzas, eggplant parmesan or as a dip with spicy eggplant bites.

My Tip:

Adding mushrooms and bell peppers is my standard recipe. You can choose to omit it. For additional flavor, add a bay leaf or some fresh basil leaves. Add chillies and black pepper according to your taste. It keeps well in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks or in the freezer for about 3 months.
