Marinara sauce from scratch
 
Next week i'm planning on making marinara sauce from scratch using fresh tomatoes, this will be my first attempt. Does anyone have a favorite recipe or any advice on making it. Should I use dried or fresh herbs? Any advice is appreciated.

Fresh herbs are almost always best! Fresh tomatoes demand fresh herbs. But, sometimes dried is all there is :(

Yeah I originally planned on using fresh herbs, you just can't beat that flavor.

I forgot to mention that allrecipe.com, (I have program on cell), has some good marinara recipes.

I looked on that website but nothing stood out. Mainly because most of them used canned tomatoes. I found a recipe that i'm thinking of trying. It has tomatoes, onions, garlic, red wine, fresh herbs...sounds delicious! It also explains how to peel the tomatoes. It includes pictures, which I love!

Roasting fresh tomatoes makes for wonderful sauce.

I've made a soup from roasted tomatoes and it was fantastic! I was considering roasting them also. I wanted an authentic recipe. I'll probably try it both ways.

I grew a plethora of lousy tomatoes this year, and after inquiring about what to do with them, am thinking Kadesma or Babe or Katie came to my aid with a wonderful roasted tomato recipe, along with many other good folk. I used rosemary, salt and pepper, garlic, and thyme, and they were outstanding!

Dried herbs are often preferred . Only use fresh at the end of cooking; dried toward the start.

And good quality canned tomatoes are often better for sauce than fresh tomatoes.
