Christopher and Amy took us to a great little pizza place
in Navarre a few weeks ago and
their marinara sauce was absolutely amazing!
I wanted to try and duplicate it so I found a great
New York recipe and I think I came pretty close!
This is what we had for dinner last night,
but it would be a wonderful little appetizer too!
- 28 oz can whole peeled tomatoes
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 TBSP olive oil
- 1TBSP unsalted butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1tsp Italian Seasoning
- 1tsp oregano
- 1tsp basil
- pinch of cayenne
In saucepan, combine butter and oil, melt.
Add garlic and onions and cook a few minutes until onion is translucent.
Add the tomatoes and break up with a spoon while it's cooking.
The marinara should be chunky. Add the spices and sugar. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Cook until reduced by 1/2 about 1 hour.
Season with extra salt if needed. Serve with the cheesy garlic bread.
Combine the olive oil and butter…

Cook on low about an hour until it’s perfect like this!
Cheesy Garlic Bread
1/2 Loaf pre-made garlic bread
or cheese of your choice
It will be a little hard to mix but a fork helps
to combine it all well.
