Marinara Sauce From Scratch

This homemade Marinara Sauce is made with slowly caramelized onions, garlic, tomatoes, and Italian seasoning.

These simple ingredients are cooked low and slow for the most rich and flavorful sauce to use with all of your Italian favorites.


– Olive Oil – Baking Soda – Garlic – Tomatoes – Italian Seasoning

Heat a large dutch oven over medium heat. Add the olive oil and heat until shimmering, then add the onions and baking soda.


Stir so they are all coated in the oil, then reduce heat to medium low.


Once the onions are caramelized, add the garlic.  Saute until the garlic is golden, or about 3-5 minutes.


Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer on low for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.


After the marinara sauce has cooked, taste and season with more salt and pepper if desired, then remove from the heat and let cool slightly before using immediately.
