Ingredients

  • 1/2

    whole Celery Stalk

  • 1/2

    whole Onion

  • 1/4

    whole Green Pepper

  • 2-1/4

    cups Tomato Juice

  • 1/2

    teaspoons Chili Powder

  • 1

    teaspoon Salt

  • 1/2

    Tablespoons Dried Parsley Flakes

  • 1

    teaspoon Paprika

  • 1/8

    cups Sugar

  • 1/4

    cups Ketchup

  • 1/8

    cups Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • 1/2

    teaspoons Oregano

  • 1/2

    teaspoons Garlic Powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoons Dry Mustard

  • 1/4

    teaspoons Black Pepper

  • 8

    ounces, fluid Tomato Paste (or 12 Oz, If Needed To Make Your Sauce Thicker)

Directions

Cook celery, onion and green pepper in a medium sauce pan in a small amount of water until very soft. (or you could also cook in a small amount of tomato juice). Puree in a blender until smooth. Put puree back in the pan and add other ingredients. Bring to a rolling boil. Turn heat down and simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Serve hot or cold. Yields approximately 2 pints. This sauce is great with breadsticks. Great with spaghetti. Great with pizza. Great with you-name-it. Note: My recipe is for home canning and makes a batch of 34 pints. I put in my best efforts at converting those quantities into small amounts. Hopefully this will come out right. (Do taste-tests and make adjustments if needed.) If anyone is interested in a larger quantity, see “Marinara Sauce To Can” in my recipe box for my canning recipe. **Edited to change sugar quantity from 1/4 cup to 1/8 cup.
