  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat, then add the minced garlic. Allow the garlic to cook until just slightly brown, but be careful not to burn it!
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except the bay leaves, to the pot, stirring to combine. Cover and bring to a low boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  • Add the bay leaves and allow your sauce to simmer for about an hour on super low heat, stirring occasionally. Your sauce is now ready to eat.
  • To freeze: Allow the sauce to cool at room temperature, then refrigerate overnight before transferring to freezer safe containers. *remove the Parmesan rind and bay leaves before freezing, also, if using glass containers, be sure to leave extra room at the top of the container to prevent cracking. 
  • To reheat, simply allow to thaw, and the heat it to desired temperature in microwave or sauce pan. This marinara will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.
