Marilyn’s Marinara Sauce

original recipe from A Taste of Light

3 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in water for 60 minutes and drained
1 Tbs. finely minced onion

1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 tsp. Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
1 1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning

Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil (optional)

  1. Place the tomatoes in a colander and allow any liquid to drain. (Drink the juice or add it to another recipe.) When the tomatoes are thoroughly drained, transfer them to a food processor fitted with the S blade and pulse to process until slightly chunky.
  2. Add the soaked and drained sun-dried tomatoes, minced onion, crushed garlic,Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Pulse to combine.
  3. Allow the sauce to sit for 10 minutes before serving to allow it to thicken. Drain off excess liquid, if any.
  4. Stored in a tightly sealed glass jar in the refrigerator, Tomato Sauce will keep for up to 3 days.


Serve over spiral cut zucchini – you will need a spiral slicer for that, or create fettuccine style noodles with a vegetable slicer. Just keep rotating the zucchini to get narrow “noodles.” Delish!
