Marinara Sauce

If you have not caught on yet, we at Fresco LOVE convenience foods.  There are occasions I love to spend all day in the kitchen but today is not one of them.  So, I am grateful for the pre-made marinara/pizza sauce I had on hand to whip dinner together.  

Whenever I make a sauces I like to make large batches and freeze smaller portions so I always have some on hand.  Here is the easy, versatile and delicious sauce recipe I used tonight on my pizzas.

  • 1 Tbl olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 2 Tbl Fresco Pizza Blend
  • 2- 28 oz. cans crushed tomatoes
  • 2 & 1/2 cups water
  • salt & pepper (to taste)


In a large sauce pan heat oil on medium heat.  Chop the onion and add it to the oil sauteing until translucent.  Stir in the Fresco Pizza Blend, tomato paste and salt and pepper and simmer for two minutes.  Next, stir in the crushed tomatoes and water.  Simmer uncovered for 45-50 minutes and finito!

Tip of the Day

Fresco Penny's Italian Blend can also be used in place of the Pizza Blend and is just as delicious!
