Whether you’re a professional chef or just learning your way around the kitchen having a go-to cannabis-infused red sauce recipe is a must for any cannabis fan.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Makes 6 cups

Skill Level: Easy


  • 1/2 cup cannaoil

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 2 (32-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes

  • 10 basil leaves

  • 4 bay leaves

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. In a large pot heat the cannaoil over medium-low heat. Add onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and sauté until soft and translucent, about 4 minutes.

  2. Add tomatoes, basil, and bay leaves.  Loosely cover the pot with a lid. 

  3. Add the sugar.  Use more sugar to achieve the desired flavor.

  4. Simmer on low heat for at least 1 hour or until desired thickness is achieved.

  5. Remove bay leaves and taste check. If the sauce as an acidic flavor add cannabis butter one tablespoon at a time until you have the desired flavor.

  6. Add half the tomato sauce into a food processor and process until smooth. If you want some chunkiness then add the pureed sauce to the remaining half. If you desire smooth sauce puree the remaining tomato sauce.

Recipe Notes: If not using all the sauce, allow it to cool completely and freeze in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
