Another Tasty Marinara Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

This sauce is so quick and easy to make, it takes any pasta dish to a new level. Simple pasta, marinara sauce and parmesan cheese...yummy! We prefer it served in our favorite lasagna or manacotti dish. I never buy store bought any longer, not when its this easy to make dishes taste special.

A really good quality sauce. Lots of olive oil, I agree, but we like it that way. Left mine a bit on the chunky side, again to please the family. Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap #56.
