Marinara Sauce using PHA

Marinara is an Italian tomato-based sauce made with onions, garlic and herbs. It is an essential part of many Italian dishes, eaten simply with pasta or used as part of a more complex dish. This chunky version contains cherry tomatoes, a good splash of red wine and fresh basil for a richer yet authentic flavour.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 150ml red wine
  • 1 x 400g can quality chopped tomatoes in juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 200g cherry tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Handful fresh basil leaves, torn



  1. Heat the oil in the saucepan; add the onion and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to fry for 1-2 minutes more.
  2. Add the wine and bring to a simmer, cook over a medium heat to reduce by half.
  3. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened.
  4. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook until they begin to pop, this will take around 4-5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the fresh basil and serve.

Cook’s Notes: For a more everyday version simply substitute the wine for vegetable stock and adjust the seasoning to taste.
