5-Minute Blender Marinara

Every Friday is pizza night around these parts. We like to offer a variety of sauces and toppings and let everyone design their own pie.

When I headed into the pantry for a jar of my favorite marinara sauce, I found the cupboard bare. Yikes! The ovens were hot, the family was hungry and I had to do something-fast.

Desperation was truly inspirational as I grabbed some canned tomatoes and my favorite Italian flavors and whipped up this quick marinara blend.

Fresh, chunky and full of flavor it will save the day when you need a red sauce in a hurry or just want something simple and flavorful that doesn’t require a lot of fuss.

5-Minute Blender Marinara

2- 15 ounce cans diced tomatoes, drained 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)

1 Tablespoon dried basil

1 Tablespoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon granular garlic

¼ teaspoon granular onion

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Pulse all ingredients on blender’s low setting until it’s combined and chopped, but still with some texture.
