Marinara sauce is an all-time favorite, and is used in dozens of Italian dishes including pizzas and chicken parmesan.
  • 800g Canned Italian tomatoes
  • 30ml Olive oil
  • 15ml Dried garlic flakes / powder (or 6 cloves fresh)
  • 2.5ml Crushed chili flakes
  • 7.5ml Salt

Italian Herb Blend:

  • 45ml Dried oregano
  • 45ml Dried chives
  • 30ml Dried rosemary
  • 15ml Dried thyme
  • 15ml Dried sage
  • 15ml Dried parsley
  1. To make your own marinara sauce place 800g of tinned italian tomatoes in juice in your food processor.
  2. You can also use fresh skinned Roma tomatoes.
  3. Add 30ml olive oil, 15ml dried garlic flakes, or 6 fresh cloves of garlic, 2.5ml chilli flakes, 7.5ml salt, 15ml Italian herb blend, 2.5ml cracked black pepper and 5ml sugar.
  4. If you cannot find Italian herb blend in your local supermarket, I have included the recipe below in the description.
  5. Pop the lid on the processor and zap this for about 30 seconds until reasonably fine.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a large pan and place this over medium heat.
  7. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer and reduce for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring regularly.
  8. Once the sauce has no visible liquid, and your spatula leaves a well defined trail that holds its shape, the sauce is ready.
  9. Turn off the heat and transfer the sauce to a container or serving bowl.
