You’ll love having your own homemade arrabbiata sauce, which is a spicy tomato marinara. Bold and fresh, this sensational sauce is full of garlic, herbs, and veggies. Serve it with practically anything!
In a large dutch oven or casserole pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions become translucent, about 6-8 minutes. Then add celery, carrots, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper; saute until veggies are softened.
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and chili pepper flakes and bring the sauce to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for about one hour, stirring every 10 minutes or so. During the last 15 minutes stir in zucchini.
If you’d like you can freeze the sauce for up to 2 months in an airtight plastic bag or container.
