pinspiration – numero veinte y tres

paul loves marinara. more so now than before. whenever we get dominos pizza or we make our own, he likes to have a small cup to dip into.

i had tried a quick marinara recipe that i found on pinterest a looong while back. paul said it tasted okay but i didn’t like it. it basically was just boiled crushed marinara and garlic.

so when i found this recipe I thought i’d give it a try. it didn’t seem too difficult nor did it have a lot of steps.

here’s what you need:
two 28 oz cans of crushed tomatoes

a pinch of fennel seeds, a bay leaf, salt and pepper, crushed red pepper, and oregano. (i think I might be missing a few things so make sure you follow the original recipe in the link above.)

oh yea, onion and garlic. (the more garlic the better.)

carrots and a celery stalk, both diced.

get started by sauteeing the onion and garlic….and creating the most delicious smelling base.

after a while of sauteeing, add the crushed tomatoes, and spices. then the basil.

once it’s simmered altogether and cooled down, jar it, date it, and put it in the fridge. i’m not quite sure how long it’s good for so i just wrote the date it was made.

do you have a favorite marinara recipe? how do the ingredients match up to the ones in this recipe?
