    Marinara Sauce

    Source of Recipe

    Recipe courtesy Michael Chiarello

    List of Ingredients

    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    3 large cloves garlic, minced
    4 cups tomato puree
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
    1 large fresh basil stem with leaves removed
    1 teaspoon sea salt, preferably gray salt
    Pinch baking soda or sugar, if needed


    Heat the olive oil in a large non-reactive pot over moderate heat. Add the garlic and saute until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes to the garlic and bring to a simmer. Add the parsley and basil and simmer until reduced to a sauce-like consistency, about 15 minutes.
    Taste and adjust the seasoning. If the sauce tastes too acidic, add the baking soda and cook for 5 more minutes. If it needs a touch of sweetness, add the sugar and cook for 5 more minutes. Remove the basil stem before serving.
