Homemade Marinara Sauce is super easy to make & tastes so much better than jarred store bought sauce. Control the ingredients, & control the flavor!
In a large skillet, heat olive oil & cook the onions until soft (don't brown). Add the garlic & cook for 30 secs.
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, spices, sugar & balsamic vinegar. Mix thoroughly.
Cover & simmer on low for 30 mins. If desired, use a blender or immersion stick blender.
Serve over pasta, or freeze in 2 cup portions!
