Quick, Easy, Cheap, and Only a Few Ingredients

Three-Ingredient Marinara

1 can (28 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper


In a food processor or blender, puree tomatoes until smooth. In a straight-sided skillet or small pan, heat oil over medium. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add pureed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 15 minutes.

Notes: This was so quick and easy to make.You can add a teaspoon of Italian seasoning if you want, but it isn't necessary. This is my favorite comfort food. I could eat spaghetti and marinara forever! So, so good!

Oh, and recipes never count salt, pepper, or things like water as an I realize that there are four lines of ingredients, but you get the idea. :) You can also top this with Parmesan cheese, if you like. You can also a little more flavor by adding 1 teaspoon (or to taste) Italian seasoning, dried basil, or dried oregano.
