How do I make this Zero Point Marinara Sauce?

Place canned tomatoes, garlic cloves, fresh basil, and parsley into a blender or food processor, blend for about 30 seconds until pureed.

Place in a large sauce pan or dutch oven. Add minced dry onions, salt, and oregano. Stir until well combined. 

Stir in tomato sauce for desired consistency.

 Let the sauce simmer for ten minutes.

How do I thicken or thin out the sauce?

Depending on your preference of thickness-you can choose to make the sauce thinner or thicker by adding water or cornstarch. 

To thicken: Use cornstarch. Cornstarch is pretty neutral in flavor and can be easily added to the sauce.  Simply stir in a small amount of 1/2 tsp cornstarch into the pasta sauce and let it cook for a minute or two. You’ll often see thickening results with a small amount of cornstarch.

To thin out: add 1/4-1 cup tomato sauce while sauce is simmering. 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 ( 14 oz ) cans of Hunts 100% Natural no salt added diced tomatoes
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 5-6 fresh basil leaves or 2 Tbsp dried basil 
  • 2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 Tbsp minced dried onions
  • 4 Tbsp fresh parsley or 1 Tbsp dried parsley 
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup to 1 cup tomato sauce, if desired

Directions:

  1. Place canned tomatoes, garlic cloves, fresh basil, and parsley into a blender or food processor, blend for about 30 seconds until pureed.
  2. Place in a large sauce pan or dutch oven. Add minced dried onions, salt, and dried oregano. Stir until well combined. 
  3. Stir in tomato sauce for desired consistency.
  4. Let the sauce simmer for ten minutes.
  5. Use on pasta, spaghetti squash, pizza, ect.

Notes:

  1. For a thinner sauce: Add 1/4 to 1 cup tomato sauce.
  2. For a thicker sauce: Whisk 1/2 tsp cornstarch with a little water. Pour into the simmer sauce and stir until well combined.
  3. Add 2 tsp of zero point white granulated sugar substitute, for added sweetness.

This recipe is PERFECT. I made it yesterday for the Cream Cheese Chicken Lasagna (which buy the way is DELISH!) and it was so yummy I made a quadruple batch so I could divvy it up in containers and freeze some for later use. Couldn't have been easier! Uses all things that I already have on hand. Thanks for a wonderful share! Love all your recipes.
