Easy Marinara Sauce

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Deb's Recipes

A simple and flavorful marinara sauce that can be used instead of store-bought spaghetti sauce. I like it served hot over cooked pasta and topped with fresh-grated Parmesan cheese.

Absolutely superb! I opted to add in some carrots to mine for some extra vegetable and added a dash of red pepper to the batch I made as pizza sauce. The base alone is perfect for pasta but I like to make a double batch to freeze and use for many dishes.
