Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over low heat and saute garlic for about 2 minutes; be careful not to burn. Just as the garlic begins to turn brown, remove pan from heat. Allow pan to cool, and add tomatoes, wine, water, salt and sugar. Cook over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in basil.

very nice basic marinara. I didn't have fresh basil so used 1 tsp. of dried. Also added some fresh chopped parsley and 1 more clove of garlic, as I love garlic flavor. This had a nice fresh taste. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to use much less EVOO..maybe 1 tbsp. is all that is needed. I found the extra was just floating around on top but it didn't taste 'greasy' though. I would also double the recipe. After I let it cook down to the consistency that I like (on the thicker side) it was enough for 3 people which was fine. Very nice. thanks for the quick and easy recipe. It is amazing how flavorful this was with such few ingredients. I used a sangria(was all I had) and the extra sweetness I think helped so it was not tart at all.

Great marinara sauce! I cut down on the oil and added a 6 oz. can of tomato paste. I like my sauces a little bit thicker. This went great over angel hair pasta.

Very very good. I served it with spaghetti. The reason I gave it a five is b/c it had so much flavor. I added some garlic powder and I left out the half cup of water. I thought it would make it to runny. Mine turned out great. I froze the leftovers for next time. Great recipe.
