I enjoy making my own pasta sauces. Whether it’s a marinara or a bolognese, there’s something satisfying about making your own to taste.

Since I love trying Copycat Recipes, making this marinara sauce from Chef Guy Fieri was a no brainer.

Besides being super simple to make, I love this marinara sauce because of how versatile it is. You can obviously use it over pasta but you can also use it to dip your Crunchy Mozzarella Sticks or for a Spicy Meatball Sub.

This recipe will yield about 3 quarts (~ 12 cups) of marinara sauce so unless you are feeding a small army, you will need to properly store any leftover sauce.

Tips
  • This marinara sauce can be frozen if needed
  • You can also store the sauce in sealed mason jars

For those of you who do not like the flavor of fire-roasted tomatoes, you can substitute for regular diced tomatoes. It will change the flavor profile of Guy’s recipe but you can deviate if you need to.

How to Seal Mason Jars

  • Using a ladle, fill sterilized mason jars leaving about 1/2 inch of headspace.
  • Remove any air bubbles by inserting a flexible spatula down the sides of the jars. Adjust headspace if necessary.
  • Wipe jar rims, place lids on jar and screw on bands finger tight.
  • Place jars in a large pot of boiling water for 20 minutes. Move jars to a cooling rack and let cool until the lids “pop”. Do not tighten bands. Let jars cool for at least 4 hours. Test seal by pressing the center of the lid. It should not give. If it makes a popping sound, it has NOT been sealed.
