The success of a lasagna lies not just in its filling but in its most basic components, including this marinara sauce.

the tomato puree is what you pulse in the food processor.

I believe where the recipe says" Add tomato puree" it should have simply stated "Add the coarsely chopped tomatoes" as given in direction #1. This is what I did and this marinara came out delicious! Hope this helps to clarify.

Direction #2 says to add tomato puree. However, there is no tomato puree listed in the Ingredients list. How much are you supposed to add?
