Quick and Versatile Marinara Sauce | Simple and Easy Recipe

In this recipe I show how I make my favourite go-to marinara sauce. It takes only about 15 minutes to make and can be paired with any of your favourite Italian dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs, a meatball sandwich, or chicken parmesan. The added kick with this marinara sauce is the chilli flakes I add to give it some spice, which I particularly love in a sauce. Of course, you can omit this part if you or those who you're cooking for don't enjoy spice in their marinara. The flavours from the garlic and tomatoes alone will still create an amazing and aromatic sauce you'll be sure to enjoy!

  • 1 can of San Marzano type tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Red chilli flakes to taste 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  1. Put the tomatoes in a food processor and pulse for a few seconds and break down the tomatoes. 
  2. Heat oil in a pan. 
  3. Mince garlic and add to pan, then add chilli flakes to taste. 
  4.  Add in the pureed tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste. Cook on medium heat until your sauce reduces and has a thick consistency. Enjoy :)
