Shallot Marinara Sauce


Oh My Goooooodnesss!!  The flavor in this marinara is outstanding! I need to warn you ahead of time, you will need to keep your toothbrush handy after eating this sauce but hey, we need to be brushing after we eat right?? I’m all about good health 🙂 I’m telling you, this sauce is so good that I smiled the whole time I was eating it. I believe the way you feel when you are cooking shows up in your food. I certainly was having a great time listening to Caruso sung by Andrea Bocelli while I was sipping on my Decoy Chardonnay (A very beautiful affordable wine). You should have seen me.. Maybe someday I will release the videos of me cooking 😉 that could be fun!

Now so you can put a smile on your face I will tell you…

What You Will Need:

2 28 ounce cans Peeled tomatoes (If you can use your own jarred tomatoes)

1 Cup Fresh Shallots, minced (I told you, you would need a toothbrush)

6 Cloves of Fresh Garlic, minced

1/2 Cup Fresh Basil Leaves, sliced into ribbons

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

2 Tbsp Dried Oregano

1 Tsp salt

1 Tsp Black Pepper

1 Tsp Crushed Red Pepper

Hopefully your mouth is watering by now so wipe your lip and Prep your Mis en Place 🙂 Love IT!


Start by mincing your shallots, and garlic.


Somethings are defiantly worth crying for……….


In a large pot on the stove set to medium high heat, add in the olive oil, shallots, and garlic.


Stir frequently until the shallot begins to soften, about 6 minutes.


Doesn’t it smell GOOD!?


After the shallots have soften, add in the tomatoes.


Then add in the salt, black pepper, red pepper, and oregano.


Begin to crush the tomatoes with a wooden spoon and set the temperature to medium low heat.


Wow! Look at that yummy nutrition! Cover and allow your sauce to simmer for 30 minutes , then add in your fresh basil and simmer for another 15 minutes.

AMAZING is what your company will say when they taste your homemade marinara sauce. Yes, they will ask you if it’s homemade 🙂

EXTRA** A quick yummy dish to pair your marinara would be sausage and peppers.

In a medium pot on the stove, bring some salted water to boil for your noodles.

Buy some assorted colors of bell peppers along with spicy Italian sausage.

In a large pan on the stove set to medium high heat, begin to carmalize your peppers.


Like this..


YUMMY!!! Next grill your sausage.


Cook your pasta according to directions and drain.


Wallah! You now have a meal that is so simple but tastes soooo complex!

Cheers to another Waistline Friendly Meal!
