Teresa’s Man-Pleasing Recipe Of The Week-Ravioli With Marinara Sauce

Teresa Provencio

If you are a fan of Italian food, this recipe is for you.  This marinara sauce is delicious and versatile, and couldn’t be easier to make.

Teresa Provencio

Here’s the easy recipe I got from Chef Tyler Florence of the Food Network.

2 tablespoons olive oil,

1 medium onion, chopped

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1- 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 whole bay leaf

1/2 teaspoon sugar

salt and pepper to taste

Teresa Provencio

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large pot, then add the chopped onion and garlic and saute until they are translucent.

Add the tomatoes, herbs and bay leaf.  Stir and add salt and pepper to taste.  Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occassionally.

I like to add a splash of red wine, and crushed red pepper.  If you have kids who don’t want to eat their vegetables, you can add frozen green peas or chopped broccoli and they will never know!  I do it because I think it’s delicious.

Boil your frozen ravioli according to package directions and drain.  Top with the marinara sauce and parmesan cheese and serve with garlic bread and a salad.  The only ingredients I had to purchase for this meal were the tomatoes, ravioli and a loaf of French bread.  I had the rest of the ingredients on hand, so the meal only cost $5.80 and feeds four.  Not too bad for a quick weeknight dinner.  Enjoy!
