• Fast & Easy Marinara Sauce

    MYO Frozen Yogurt-b101-marinara.jpgThis works great as a super fast, dirt cheap marinara sauce recipe and doubles as a great pizza sauce recipe as well.

    You'll Need:
    1 can tomato paste
    1 Tbs Italian seasoning
    1 clove garlic (or more, depending on your taste), minced
    1 Tbs (olive) oil
    2 c boiling water
    1/2 diced tomato (*Optional, if you have it for heartiness)


    This one is very quick and easy to prepare. First, Heat the oil, and sauté the garlic BRIEFLY. Add all of the remaining ingredients and bring it to a boil, immediately reduce heat and simmer 5-7 minutes.

    If you have the chance, refrigerate this for a day or 2 for best flavor.

      Can you tell me how big the can of tomato paste should be? Tomato paste tends to come in very small cans since most recipes only need about a tablespoon of it at a time, but I have also seen larger cans, and it makes a big difference in the recipe.

      The small cans your referring too are the ones that would be used in this recipe.

      Just made some Cheesy Italian Mini Muffins and this sounds like a great dip for them! Can't wait to try it.

      I tried this recipe, but I found it quite sweet for my liking. It didn't have as much spice as I'm used to either. Next time I'm going to try tomato sauce and see if that helps.
