Try my fried polenta recipe with this marinara sauce:

Marinara Sauce
1 yellow onion, super fine dice
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. heaping fresh sage
1 Tbsp. fresh Thyme
2 tsp. Fresh oregano
20 large leaves fresh basil, chiffonade
1 handful bunch of fresh parsley
1 tsp. Fresh rosemary petals, chopped
Celery hearts from 1 bunch of celery
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 heaping cup of dried porcini mushrooms
¼ cup red wine
2 cans of San Marzano peeled tomato (28 oz. ea.)


Place the mushrooms in a bowl of cold water and dunk them. Swish the mushrooms occasionally for 4 or 5 minutes to loosen any dirt or sand. Then place the mushrooms in another bowl and add hot water. Let them soak for about 10 minutes to rehydrate.

In a large frying pan over medium high heat, add the olive oil and onion and saute for 30 – 40 minutes. Then add the garlic and saute for an additional 2 minutes.

Take the sage, oregano, and thyme remove the leaves. I like to remove the petals from the stems of the rosemary and chop them up with a knife before putting them in a food processor so that they are finely chopped and disappear in the sauce.

After the mushrooms have rehydrated, remove them from the water and place them on a cutting board to chop them up.

Place 1 can of the tomato along with the mushrooms and ½ of the herbs except the basil into the food processor and blend until smooth. Pour this into the onion mixture. Repeat the process with the second batch of tomato and herbs.

Add the wine to the sauce and salt to taste. Simmer this for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, we will chiffonade the basil. Stack 10 leaves on top of each other and roll them into a cylinder. Slice into thin pieces and then chop in the other direction. Add it to the sauce and stir. Simmer another 10 minutes.

You can serve this sauce over pasta, cauliflower rice, pizza, meatloaf, stuffed tomatoes, lasagna, etc. The ideas are endless!

I hope you enjoy this healthy marinara sauce!
