Miss Araya's Marinara Sauce

When you're taking care of someone who's very sick, or when someone passes away, people feel compelled to feed you.  I don't know how or why that tradition started, but I was ever grateful for it a few months back.  When you're in that place, just trying to get through each day, the last thing you are thinking about is cooking.

We were blessed with friends and family and neighbors who brought us the gift of their love, time and effort in casserole dishes and crock pots.

I cannot thank them enough. 

This is a recipe from one of those wonderful people.  She brought this over the night that my father's family all came to see him for the last time, and was kind enough to share the recipe.

Thank you, Araya.

Miss Araya's Marinara Sauce
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves of garlic, cut up
- 2 large cans of whole tomatoes, peeled with basil
- 3/4 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp salt
- sprinkle of pepper
- sprinkle of parsley
- sugar, start with 2 tsp and add more if needed after tasting

Saute garlic in the oil on medium heat until brown, then remove just the garlic from pan.  Add tomatoes and crush.  Add all seasonings, bringing to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer down until it reduces, or about 45 minutes.
