    Hi there! I have so many tomatoes in my yard right now, Iโ€™m dying to make this. Iโ€™m a novice cook though and Iโ€™m wondering if Iโ€™m using fresh tomatoes about how many would I need? Thanks so much!

    Truly a fantastic recipe find! I used canned crushed tomatoes and only half a cup of water and it was perfect! You’d never know it didn’t have real parmesan cheese! My husband even said it was “really good” three times during our meal! It’s a keeper! Thank you!

    Thank you Paola. This recipe really made me feel like I’m a great cook haha. I had to simmer mine for way longer than 15 minutes but the outcome was delicious. Next time I think I’ll add less water.

    Good base recipe. I might cut down on the oil and water by half each and maybe add a little more pepper flakes. I may also add some garden vegetables to make it a bit heartier. This is a great recipe and I look forward to making it again and again so I can perfect it to my personal taste. Thank you!

    I almost wish it said tomato chunks instead of whole tomatoes, because even when I tried to crush them with my hands, there were still some big pieces. Otherwise, great flavor to the sauce. And easy to make!!

    Hi recipe sounds easy and great, however have tried another which calls for onion and found it added a wonderful tang to the sauce, curious if it is OK paleo ingredient .
    someone asked about freezing to keep i have froze my sauces but find it Ok if use in first couple weeks. find best to jar it in mason jars they say when jarred correctly can keep up to yr.

      Hi Ralph! Onion is paleo… but Italians would roll in their graves to hear people are adding it to marinara ๐Ÿ˜œ

      Hi Valerie! You likely just needed to cook for longer to reduce the water. Tomatoes can vary in water content etc, just just be sure to cook it until you get the consistency you want xo!

    I am usually not the biggest fan of red sauces (unless its on pizza)…this is the best sauce EVER. I can’t believe I ever bought store bought jar sauces ever before when this is so easy and tasty. One change I made was to use vegetable stock instead of water. Loved it.

  8. Lori says:

    I was skeptical about this because it seemed too easy but it is DELICIOUS and my super picky SO loved it too. Thank you for the recipe!

    A serving size for me is half a cup. So this would have 7 servings. So to calculate nutritional values per serving you would divide Everything by seven. Amazing sauce by the way. Thank you!

    This sauce is easy to make. I made this sauce to use on the pizza crust recipe. My grandsons are my guinea pigs. They are very picky. So, while having them taste my pizza, my 14 yr old grandson states, “this is the best marinara sauce he has ever eaten”, Lol, guess I need to work on my crust so more. The whole family loves it!!!!! Thanks.

    Left comments on the wonderful pizza base so itโ€™s only right to do the dame with the sauce. Firstly it tasted AMAZING!! For me next time, Iโ€™d leave the garlic cloves whole having crushed them and remove them when the sauce is ready as Iโ€™m not one for eating sliced garlic and prefer it for its flavour. For me, it was a little too watery but that wad perhaps the plum tomatoes I used so Iโ€™ll experiment more with or reduce it for longer but again, it was the bomb! Thanks Paolo xx

    I’m seeing a lot of recipes using canned tomatoes and I am wondering if we can use fresh tomatoes instead? Is there an issue with using fresh? (This is my fave recipe I have come to stumble upon so far and I really want to make it!) Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Paola says:

      Hi Sulina! Canned tomatoes are simply the easiest way to have access to the best tomatoes (and they quick faster!). Having said that, definitely feel free to use fresh ones! xo!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Donna, as stated right before the nutrition label, those values are for the entire batch! Which is roughly 3-4 cups. And remember that tomato is a fruit, so it is higher in carbs than other veggies. xo

        P,

        I saw the comment about the nutritional information was for the whole recipe but there was no serving size or the number of servings per the whole recipe. Please advise. ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Paola says:

          I just calculated it for the entire recipe so you guys can divide it between the number of servings to fit your macros (and dish!)

    Easily the best and easiest marinara sauce we’ve made! I was skeptical at the beginning because of the large amount of garlic and no onion… but it was delicious! Made it for your deep dish pizza and it was a huge hit with the family!
