Easy Marinara Sauce
The ingredients you will need are honestly things you should have in your pantry already! You will need: olive oil, 2 large cans of crushed tomatoes (or diced tomatoes if you're me), minced garlic, salt, pepper, dried basil and dried oregano.
Start by heating olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat.
Add in your garlic, my theory on garlic is: the more, the merrier!
Add in crushed tomatoes
I like to add a little water to the can to get the leftover bits out. I would say no more than 1/4 cup of water.
Because I only had diced tomatoes for my second can of tomatoes, I added in a 1 tbsp of tomato paste to thicken it up a bit.
Don't forget your seasoning! Add in salt and....
Add in basil and...
Simmer for 20-25 minutes and ENJOY! Freeze leftovers in soup containers!
