This is my family's favorite simple marinara sauce, which I have been making the same way for over 30 years.
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 onions, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1/2 pound mushrooms, chopped
- 2-15 ounce cans tomato sauce
- 15 ounce can chopped tomatoes
- 1 1/2 tbsp parsley flakes
- 2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- dash sea salt, if desired
Place the water, onions, garlic and mushrooms in a large pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions soften and begin to take on a golden color, about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Do not cover. Serve over pasta.
Hints: This may be made ahead and reheated. It also freezes well.
