  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh banana peppers, stem and seeds removed
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 6-ounces tomato paste
  • 28 ounces can tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/23/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 12 teaspoon sugar


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the oil. When the oil starts to shimmer add the onions and banana peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add in the garlic, stir and cook for 2 minutes. Next add in the tomato paste, stir to incorporate and cook for 3-5 minutes or until you can “smell” the tomato paste start to warm up.
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. Bring to a low boil and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  4. Cook for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust for seasonings. At this point, you can leave chunky or for a smoother consistency use an immersion blender.
  5. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
