- 2-3 cups Sun Dried tomatoes, soaked in water for 2 hours (not oil packed, buy dried sun dried tomatoes)
- 8-10 fresh Tomatoes
- fresh basil
- sea salt
- olive oil
If making this marinara sauce to use on zucchini ‘pasta’ that has been tossed in pesto sauce, this will make more than enough for 8 people as an entrée, and 16 people as a side dish.
For lasagna, a blender full of marinara should be just enough for one large lasagna, but have enough ingredients on hand to make a bit more sauce if you need to.
Cut up and blend the tomatoes in a blender. You should have approximately 3 cups of pureed tomato. Drain the sun dried tomatoes (save the liquid to thin the sauce later if you need to) and add enough of them to the tomato puree until the mixture is quite thick. Add the following to your liking: garlic, onion, a little olive oil, parsley, fresh basil, sea salt, oregano. (Add any other ingredients that you like in a tomato or marinara sauce, cut up olives would be nice.)
