Features of the Turkey Bacon Marinara Sauce
- Cooking Skill level: Easy
- Cooking time: Under 30 Minutes
- Taste Impression: Same great taste as Marinara sauce that was cooked for hours! Done in 30 minutes.
If I don’t have much time and need a tasty dinner, this is the one for you. This marinara sauce is homemade and is one of my under 35-minute dinners. It also has all the same great flavors as a pasta sauce that was slowly cooked for hours! The turkey bacon adds a perfect, salty, smoky flavor.
Supply Used in the: Marinara Sauce
- Turkey Bacon
- Dry oregano
- Dry Thyme
- Fresh Basil
- Fresh Garlic
- Diced can Tomato
- Tomato Paste
- Olive oil
Heat a large fry pan over medium flame. Add the olive oil, bacon, and onions into the warm pan. Cook for 15 minutes.
Add the chopped mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
Sprinkle in the dried thyme and oregano along with the fresh basil, garlic, and sugar.
I like to introduce the garlic at this point with the herbs rather than with the onions and bacon so it won’t add a bitter or burnt flavor to the marinara sauce 🙂
Pour in the diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Keep stirring and cook for 5 more minutes or until warm and bubbly! I will taste it at this point to check for the right amount of salt.
