Nothing has ever come together quicker than this Magic Bullet Marinara Sauce and it is THE BEST sauce you know right now. Not fancy. Not too chunky, no herbs to muddy the flavor. A real, classic, Italian marinara, and guess what? You have everything you need already in your pantry.
First, let’s talk about my new BFF, the Magic Bullet. I had one of these when they came out 10 years ago, I loved it then…but I lost it in the 5 moves that have happened since.
A couple of weeks ago when I made that Keto Low Carb Sugar Free Nutella, I told you that I needed a new food processor…and I still do. I was getting weary of pulling the whole thing out when I just wanted to make a little sauce. I still want to pull it out for the big jobs though. And by the way, I also don’t want to pull out a blender and do all the things. I can’t. No time.
This little magic bullet though. It is small, it is fast, it whips up the sauce. I’m officially done pulling out the immersion blender (still my second BFF though), done pulling out all the things of the food processor (still my third BFF).
How To Make Magic Bullet Marinara Sauce
It starts with diced tomatoes, the big can. You blend up half on it’s own, and pour it into a little saucepan.
You blend up the other half of the can with olive oil, tomato paste, garlic, sugar (I use Swerve, sugar replacement), salt, and a pinch of crushed red pepper.
If freshness had a color, this would be it. It’s bright and vibrant, and so is the flavor. So yum. You can put this on so many things. Let’s talk about it. Pasta, chicken, pizza, tomato soup, Shakshuka, minestrone, sounds good right?
I used it recently on this amazing Air Fryer chicken parmesan.
If you have a can of tomatoes, olive oil, tomato paste, garlic, salt, and sugar you can make this right now!Print
Only five ingredients in this classic Italian marinara.
28oz can diced tomatoes
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp tomato paste
pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
Process half of the tomatoes in the largest cup of a Magic Bullet
Pour into a saucepan
Process the other half of the tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients
Bring sauce to a low boil over medium heat, reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes or more.*
10 minutes is good, but you can really let this go for awhile and simmer away.
