    lyssalynne's Note:

    I get so many compliments on this recipe every time I make it. This is a slightly spicy yet sweet basil marinara sauce. I am vegan but occasionally I make a special pot for my husband who loves it when I add a ground link of Spicy Italian Sausage to simmer in the sauce and serve it with sausage on the side.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash all ingredients very well. Start with tomatoes and water over low heat in medium pot. Slowly stir in each ingredient and continue cooking and stirring for about 1/2 hour to an hour (at least, the longer/the better). If you can, refrigerate and reheat. I don't know why, but it taste better.
    2. 2
      Great Additions: Artichoke Hearts, mushrooms, chopped onion, etc are just a few great additions you can add to this recipe! I have tried all of these just based on what I have in the kitchen at the time, and it always comes out great!
    3. 3
      Note: This recipe is so versatile. Serve over pasta, I prefer linguini), vegetables, or even toasted crostini bread with a bit of mozzeralla on top. It can also be served cold over sliced toasted Italian bread as a bruschetta -- mmm.
    4. 4
      Tip: I worked in a family owned Italian restaurant in high-school. They said to stir continually and never let the sauce boil. I try every time but have yet to succeed.

      I made this last week to serve over penne and we enjoyed it. I took your advice and made it the day before and served the next day. I used somewhat less oregano and basil ~ just personal preference. I also used the 1/2 cup sugar and it was still a little sweet for me. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
