Use this homemade marinara for spaghetti, lasagna, pita pizza, chicken Parmesan and meatball subs. The red wine can be omitted, if desired.


(Serves 10)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 5 cups no-salt-added crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dry basil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground fennel
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil. Once the pan becomes hot, add the onion. Stir continuously for about 2 minutes. Add garlic; stir for 1 minute. Add wine and let mixture reduce by half. Add remaining ingredients. Stir and let simmer on very low heat for 15 to 20 minutes.
