Marinara Sauce Recipe (Vegan)

We rarely eat tomato sauce in our house due to Sam's and my tomato sensitivities. We can have tomatoes every now and then, though, and every once in a while we crave spaghetti with tomato sauce. I don't cook with onions and garlic, so my marinara sauce is flavored with lots of dry spices. This marinara sauce is rich and flavorful - perfect to put over spaghetti/pasta, gnocchi, or even on a pizza.

Marinara Sauce Recipe

2 tbsp olive oil
1-1/2 cups of canned tomato puree or crushed tomatoes(about half of a 28 oz. can)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt (depending on your taste)
1/4 tsp pepper
2 bay leaves

In a medium size sauce pan, add the olive oil and turn the heat to Medium High. Add the tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients and stir until well combined. Let the sauce heat up to a boil, then cover the pot, turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for 30 minutes or longer. Remove the bay leaves before serving. Serve over your favorite pasta. Serves 2 adults (and one small child).
