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. ..." See more 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...." See more"
"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 run..." See moreny. Mine turned out great. I froze the leftovers for next time. Great recipe."
