For those who have a Vitamix blender here is a fast way to make and heat up marinara sauce in the blender in about 6 minutes.

I'm making another batch of this deliciousness. My family loves the crockpot marinara plus I have tons of Toms right now.

Would this be good with green tomatoes?  I've never seen green marinara sauce, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be interesting to try.  thinking

Thoughts?

Are they green tomatoes, or GWR (green when ripe) tomatoes?  Might need some tomato paste and some sugar, but it would definitely be worth trying, in my opinion!  In February, some of that sunshine will taste heavenly!  A little pesto, parmy, GO for it!

My first batch, for this year, of marinara sauce is in the crockpot.  I was able to use Roma tomatoes, garlic, onions and basil, all grown in the SFG.

I ran out of Roma tomatoes (for now) so my third batch is using a variety of SFG grown tomatoes.

My best batch this year was one which had 75% yellow tomatoes, mainly Kellogg's Breakfast and Lemon Boys. It never made it to the freezer because we had it as a delicious tomato soup.  Yours will turn out great.

This sounds delicious, and I might give it a try. The VitaMix is great for making sauces like this. We have an abundance of yellow tomatoes right now, and it would be a good experiment to make this Marinara Sauce with yellow instead of red tomatoes.

Thanks for bringing this thread up, TD.  After reading it I started putting my maters in a bag in the freezer instead of giving them away.  My kitchen is currently under construction but maybe I can make the sauce this weekend.

+1  - I have 9 packs of frozen tomatoes that I will be processing after the season.  Total of about 72 cups of tomatoes (seeded and skinned already).

When I make this sauce, I literally blend the entire tomato, skin, seeds, the whole thing in there...super easy.  

I did some with the peppers/onions, and some without for other applications more like straight up tomato sauce?  With garlic...

The bomb.  I leave the lid off at the end so it can thicken some

That is what I love about our VitaMix - once they are run through it, there is no skin, core, or seeds that can be identified.  Just wash the tomatoes, quarter them, and through them in the container with the other recipe items, and it is done.  Very Happy

Just finished making this for the 1st time.  Delish! and a good way to use up extra tomatoes.  Have already shared the recipe with a couple of family members.

I just cut off the stem, quartered them and threw in the food processor like other posters had done. Works great and so easy. Used up some Better boys, Cherokee purples and cherry tomatoes. 

Thanks for sharing this.
