Fresh Tomato Marinara Sauce Recipe
Homemade tomato sauce is a great way to use your garden's bounty of tomatoes. This recipe uses plenty of herbs and is vegetarian-friendly.
Tomatoes, parsley, garlic, and oregano go for a spin in your food processor before simmering with onion and a dash of white wine in this marinara sauce recipe.
This sauce states "fresh" tomato sauce and I used beautiful ripe red tomatoes straight out of our garden and it is wonderful. I did use fresh oregano and basil finely diced. I doubled the recipe and froze to use this winter. When I use this sauce in December it will bring back the warmth and taste of summer tomatoes
I made this with fresh tomatoes from Tennessee (while visiting my vegetarian niece). I've never made marinara sauce before because I love meat sauce but this was exceptional!
By end of summer, I had lots of garden tomatoes so I tried this recipe. It was a hit. The only change I made was to take another reviewers advice to add a little tomato paste near the end to thicken it up a little (about a half of the small can). I think next time, I will decrease the black pepper, as the flavor of that is a bit strong for me, but still loved it!
very good but the sauce was too thin. I added a small can of tomato paste, and used fresh basil. used valencia tomatoes.
This sauce is pretty potent! It is packed full of flavor so a little goes a long way. I did a few things differently: -I roasted the tomatoes first to peel them and make them softer. -I did not have marjoram or fennel so I used a teaspoon of "Italian Seasonings" -I used fresh basil rather than dried -and I added about three tablespoons of butter.
I've tried several fresh sauce recipes and this one is the best. Made a few changes - didn't have fennel; used fresh basil; and added a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste to thicken it slightly. Flavors blended well and I loved the addition of the balsamic vinegar. Wish I had discovered this recipe before using up most of my tomato harvest!
Wow, cannot believe I'm the first to review this wonderful sauce! What a great way to use the bounty of fresh tomatoes at this time of year. Followed the recipe exactly until the amount of time for the last simmering. After step #2, I put the sauce on low and went to the nail salon. When I returned more than an hour later, I found the house smelling like Italian food heaven! This sauce is on the garlic spicy side, but Paul Newman would love it! It tastes like his Sockarooni sauce but oh so much better. I'm going to make it again soon with more of my tomato bounty, but this time it will be with a tad less garlic and spice and instead some mushrooms and fresh basil. This recipe is fantastic. Thanks!
