Simple Marinara Sauce

If you are looking for an easy sauce to prepare and you have a lot  of tomatoes, this is the dish to make.  It uses up many of those fresh tomatoes, plus the garlic and basil, from the farm.

Simple Marinara Sauce

  • 8 to 10 medium to large tomatoes
  • 1 to 2 tsp dried oregano (or equivalent of fresh)
  • handful of fresh basil
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sugar

Wash and core the tomatoes, then slice in quarters.  Place them into food processor and puree till smooth (or partly chunky if you prefer).  Pour into a large pot and add remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil, then simmer an hour or so until sauce reaches desired consistency.
