If you’re stranded without a jar of pasta sauce or pizza sauce – fret not! My guess is you have the ingredients to make your own all purpose marinara sauce in your pantry! This multi-use sauce shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to prep and then about 30 minutes on the stove. This is my go-to for things like: pizza sauce, pasta sauce, a base for soup, or a base for a chili.
  • Tomato Soup, Condensed – 2 cans
  • Water – 1 can
  • Onion – 1/2 of one whole
  • Butter – 2 Tablespoons
  • Brown Sugar – 1 Tablespoon
  • Dried Parsley – 1 Tablespoon
  • Salt & Pepper – 1/4 teaspoon each
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flake – pinch
  1. Place all ingredients in a pot then simmer for about 30 minutes over low, uncovered (watch the popping of sauce, the lower, the less messy it’ll be!)
  2. Enjoy immediately or cool and save for later
Sometimes I’ll use a can of condensed tomato soup with a can of crushed tomatoes or tomato puree – the point is that you can use tomato products as a base for a quick, easy sauce![br][br]Add fresh herbs if you have them on hand[br][br]Add fresh basil, cheddar cheese, and cream for a tomato soup![br][br]Use over your favorite pasta or on a homemade pizza dough[br][br]Set it and forget it with a bigger batch in a crock pot over low for 3 hours[br][br]Jar it up, add a sassy label, and give as a gift!
