Kim's Kick'n Marinara Sauce

This recipe was created out of necessity. I usually obsessively plan our dinners, but one day I came home, was tired, with no plan and did not want to go the store. I looked in the fridge and cupboard and came up with this kick*ss marinara sauce which we put over some zucchini noodles and seasoned pork.

Marinara Sauce

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

3 small onion, chopped (all we had were tiny red onions from the garden, so i used )

2 garlic cloves, minced (i used one giant clove from elephant garlic)

1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

1 tbsp. oregano

1/2 tsp. fennel seeds

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1 tbsp. dried sage

2 - 14 ounce cans peeled tomatoes (i had one can diced and one can stewed. so that's what i used. however, you can use fresh peeled


1Heat olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat

2Add onion and garlic. Allow to soften and become fragrant, about 5 minutes.

3Add spices. Allow to become fragrant, about 3 minutes.

4Add tomatoes plus their juices and let soften. Flatten whole tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon.

5Cover and reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes.

6Remove from heat. Once the sauce has cooled slightly, use an immersion blender to make a smooth sauce, or carefully blend small batches in a blender (be careful if it's still hot!).

Additional Notes

We put this on top of zucchini noodles and seasoned pork and finished with parmesan cheese and julienned basil. I'm going to try this again adding additional components to the sauce: fresh basil, mushrooms, cheeses, etc. Let me know what creations you come up with!
