Marinara Sauce
You don't need a lot of effort and ingredients to make a delicious zero point marinara sauce. I make this on meal prep day and use it throughout the week for 2 ingredient dough pizza, raviolis, grilled chicken pizza and other stuff.
Total Cook/Prep time: 60 minutes


  • 2 cans whole peeled plum tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 5 or 6 sprigs of fresh basil
  • 3 tbsp red wine
  • 1 tsp olive oil


In a food processor, puree the whole peeled tomatoes

Set aside

Chop the onion 

Smash the garlic cloves to remove skin, then mince each clove as finely as you can

Add the olive oil and onions to a medium sauce pot (low heat)

Allow the onions to heat for about 3 minutes, or until they become slightly translucent

Add the garlic and stir it into the onions

Let that heat for about 1 minute

Add the pureed tomatoes and red wine

Let the sauce simmer for 1 hour

Remove the basil leaves from the stem and chop them

Add the basil to the sauce at the very end and mix it in to combine

Store the sauce in a large mason jar or container
