This is a good sauce for pasta! Recipe is from Woman's Day. Plan ahead: Use half the sauce for 1 lb pasta, then refrigerate the rest up to 1 week, or freeze.

This is perfect for a quick weeknight meal! 10 minutes - that's it!! Did add a bit of crushed red pepper to add some spice! Thanks Lainey! :)

This sauce is marvelous for the little time it takes to prepare. I usually use recipe #332598 but I didn't have any left in the freezer and there wasn't enough time to make a batch up. So I came to Zaar and found this recipe. I added some basil and a bay leaf and pureed it so the kids (and husband) couldn't find any chunks of tomatoes. I will be using this marinara sauce to prepare recipe #303399 tonight. Thank you Lainey6605.

Made this up in a flash last night. Took lots of tastes...yummy. I will be using it in two recipes this week. It is great to have a sauce that is made at home to use. I made two little changes. I used tomato sauce instead of crushed tomaoes (simply because ididn't have any crushed tomatoes) I also added a little bit of oregano. Don't judge this sauce before it cooks a little. The flavors need a little time to blend in. In fact I think making it a 20 minutes sauce and lettingit simmer some is a good idea. Thanks Lainey...this will be my go to from now on.
