Fried Ravioli and Marinara Sauce

Easy Marinara Sauce

We all need an easy marinara sauce recipe to have on hand. This marinara sauce is great to use for a pasta dish or as a dipping sauce. This recipe is easy so you don’t need to purchase prepared jarred sauces. Besides many of the jarred sauces contain sugar, which I find unnecessary. 


1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1 Chopped Garlic Clove

28 Ounces Crushed Tomatoes

3 Fresh Chopped Basil Leaves

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 Cup Red Wine

Add the olive oil to a large-size sauté pan. Turn the heat to medium-high.  Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes until lightly browned. Add tomatoes, kosher salt, wine and basil. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Turn heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Transfer to serving bowl for dip or over cooked pasta of your choice. Makes about 1 1/2 cups sauce.
