What is a good substitute for marinara sauce?

I’ve made a substitute by combining fresh tomatoes with water and tons of italian spices.  Simmer for 30 minutes so the flavors can combine.

What is the difference between marinara sauce and tomato sauce?

Marinara sauce is thinner in texture and has a simpler flavor.  It’s best for tossing with pasta.

Tomato sauce is usually a more involved process with pureed tomatoes and more spices such as carrots, onion, celery, bay leaf and thicker consistency.

Pasta sauce is usualy mixed with ground meat, sausage or veggies.

Step-by-step instructions for Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce

  1. Heat the olive oil in medium size pot over medium heat for sauce
  2. Add garlic and onion and saute for about 10 minutes and until onions are soft
  3. Add fresh Roma tomatoes, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, oregano, fresh basil (I use from my indoor garden), thyme and dash of salt & pepper to pot for sauce.
  4. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. In separate skillet add garlic, onion and seasoning of choice and brown organic beef
  6. Add ground beef to sauce
  7. Simmer for 10-15 minutes to let flavors blend

How to Make Homemade Pasta Sauce:

I separate meat and sauce so that if someone doesn’t want meat they have that option.

Recipe Tips and Variations

Let flavors combine before adding too much salt

Sugar can help balance flavors if the sauce gets too acidic
