Homemade Marinara 10/12/13

Hey ya’ll! I know you want a quick dinner. I know you reach for the prepared mixes and sauces. There are some great ones out there, but they cost you money. I know we are always trying to save some money, right? Here is a way. Make your own sauce. This is a marinara sauce. I have made my home made sauce tons of times, and they are always kinda different depending with what is in my fridge. This is tonight’s homemade marinara sauce…

1 onion chopped
1/2 garlic head; peeled, crushed, and chopped
1 whole stalk of celery roughly chopped
The rest of my trifecta of peppers chopped; red, yellow, and orange
Cook all these for 20 minutes
Add at least 3/4 of a bottle of red wine and a few tablespoons of tomato paste
Add 2 28 oz. can of San Marzano tomatoes; 1 peeled, 1 crushed
1 can of tomato sauce
add oregano, basil, 2 tablespoons of sugar and Worcestershire sauce

Cook for at least 2 hours. The longer the better.
