This super quick and easy classic marinara sauce takes twenty minutes to make, and uses pantry staples that you probably have on hand now. Great for a weeknight meal with pasta, pizza or spaghetti squash!
Place oil, garlic and red pepper flakes in a cold medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until the garlic becomes fragrant and just starts to sizzle, being careful not to let the garlic brown, about 1 minute.
Pour the tomatoes into the pan, add oregano, bay leaves, salt and pepper, stir to combine.
Reduce heat to medium low and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking to the bottom of the pan. If the sauce is bubbling too much, reduce heat further.
Remove from heat, and remove bay leaves before serving.
You can simmer longer than 20 minutes, if desired, just stir occasionally to make sure it doesn't burn, and you may also want to reduce the heat to low. This does freeze well. I usually freeze it in a mason jar.
