Home Made Italian Marinara Sauce

Italian Pasta sauce (Marinara sauce)

2 cans (14.5oz) of stewed tomatoes
1 can (6oz) of tomato pastes
1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 T of fresh oregano
1 T of Italian seasoning
1 t of salt
1/4 t of ground fresh black pepper
1/2 onion diced
1/4 cup + 2 T olive oil
1/2 cup of cooking white wine
1 pkg of sweetener (optional)

Put everything together (except the sweetener) in the blender and blend it till smooth.
Pour the sauce in a medium sauce pan and turn the heat to medium till bubble
Add the sweetener if needed up to you.
Then turn the heat to simmer for 15 minutes.
Turn the heat off and ready to serve on pasta.
You can freeze left over sauce very nicely in a container for later.

Serve with my homemade Italian sausage and any kind of pasta; just pour this sauce over the pasta.
