Tuscan marinara sauce consists mainly of sun ripened plum tomatos. Garlic, celery, onion, carrot, parsley, hot pepper and olive oil help to flavor the sauce. Also in this recipe is added basil, salt and pepper and a very small amount of sugar.

You can use fresh or canned plum tomatoes. A clove of garlic, a celery stalk of about six inches, small carrot, one quarter of an onion, bunch of parsley, a bunch of basil, dried red pepper flakes if you like it spicy, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add one-half teaspoon of sugar if you want.

Here are the ingredients for a Tuscan marinara sauce: 2-3 pounds of cored and chopped tomatoes, one garlic clove, one 6-inch long stick of celery, one small carrot, 1/4 yellow onion, one parsley bunch, one basil bunch, one dried or fresh chili pepper, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, and salt and pepper to taste.

Marinara sauce originated in Naples, which is not in Tuscany. The name comes from the Italian word for sailor, because it was made for sailors returning from the sea. It does not contain fish, even though some believe it should have anchovies in it. The ingredients are simple: olive oil, garlic, crushed Italian tomatoes, basil, and salt and pepper.
