Homemade marinara sauce freezes incredibly well. I prefer freezing it in smaller jars so I can thaw exactly what I need in the future. To thaw marinara sauce, simply place it in your fridge overnight.


  • 2 (28 oz) cans San Marzano Tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped yellow onions
  • 5 - 10 cloves garlic minced (depending on how garlicky you like it)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt, then more to taste
  • 4 sprigs (20g) fresh basil
  • Shredded Parmesan or Romano cheese and chopped basil, for serving
