Sheila's Simple Marinara Sauce

“This is the way I have made a simple marinara sauce for the past 20 odd years or so. While it is not my personal favorite, it has always been the favorite of both my husband and son. The addition of the baking soda removes the acidity of the tomatoes, so it is excellent for those who require have an acid-sensitive stomach.”

Directions

  1. In saucepan, melt butter. Add chopped onion and garlic. Saute until onion is soft. Add tomatoes, soda, sugar, salt, basil, and pepper (if using), and heat to boiling. (Initially the sauce will foam from the baking soda, but this will dissipate quickly.) Lower heat to simmer and cook gently for 15-20 minutes.
