Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Marinara sauce

4 Celery Stalks
4 Carrots
4 White onions
5 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
96 oz crushed tomatoes
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup sugar

Recipe Directions for Homemade Marinara sauce

  1. In a large casserole pot, heat the oil over a medium-high flame.

  2. Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.

  3. Add the celery, carrots, and 1/2 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.

  4. Add the tomatoes and bay leaves, and simmer uncovered over low heat until the sauce thickens, about 1 hour.

  5. Remove and discard the bay leaf. Season the sauce with more salt and pepper, to taste.
