Speedy Marinara Sauce

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Yield Makes 5 1/2 cups
Some brands of prepared spaghetti sauce are sold in 26-ounce jars; that size works fine for this recipe too.


  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 (25-ounce) jars roasted garlic spaghetti sauce
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Sauté onion in hot oil in a Dutch oven 5 minutes; stir in next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; add salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.

  2. Note: For testing purposes only, we used 2 (25-ounce) jars Emeril's Roasted Gaaahlic Pasta Sauce.
