Rocco's Marinara Sauce | Now Eat This!

Rocco's How Low Can You Go Low-Fat Marinara Sauce ingredients
Makes 6.5 cups for 13 (1/2 cup) servings
1/2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 large yellow onion, cut into small dice
Crushed red pepper
2 (28-oz) cans tomato purée
1/2 cup water
1 small piece of Parmigiano- Reggiano cheese rind
1 large sprig fresh basil

Heat a Dutch oven over Medium heat. When the pot is hot, add the olive oil, garlic, onion, and salt and crushed red pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion and garlic are translucent, about four (4) minutes.

Add the tomato purée, water, and Parmigiano-Reggiano rind to the pot; bring to a simmer. Then, cover and reduce to Low heat; simmer for about twenty five (25) minutes.

With the back of a knife, bruise the basil and stir the sprig into the sauce. Simmer the sauce, uncovered, for five (5) minutes more. Season with salt and crushed red pepper to taste, if desired. Serve, or store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to five (5) days.     Back to Top
