Homemade Marinara Sauce

  • Author: smileyspoints


28 oz can of whole plum tomatoes (cubed them or use another can of crushed tomatoes if you don’t like the chunks)
28 oz of crushed or diced tomatoes
3 tbsp of garlic minced
1/4 cup basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 tsp salt and pepper
1/2 c water
1/4 c shredded carrots (optional) they add texture 🙂
1 tbsp olive oil


Put carrots in the Foodi with a tablespoon oil
Saute for 5 minutes or until soft.
If you are using minced or diced onions add them at this time.
Add garlic and saute for 1 minute more
Add tomatoes and remaining ingredients and stir to mix thoroughly
Simmer for 20 minutes or until sauce reaches desired consistency
I like it a little thick so I simmered for 25 minutes and it came out perfect.
