When I need to pull a marinara sauce together quick and have it taste flavorful this is the recipe I go to. It's ready to serve as soon as it's done. Of course the flavors get stronger as it sits in the refrigerator but it's not a must with this recipe.


Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
White onion 1 Cup (16 tbs) , diced
Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm) , minced
Red pepper flakes 1/2 Teaspoon
