  1. Heat olive oil in large pot, add onions (and other veggies if using) and saute a minute or two before adding garlic. Add tomatoes red pepper, sugar if using, and oregano or basil.

Homemade marinara is so much tastier, not to mention healthier, than the grocery store variety. And it's so easy to make!
