Easy Marinara Sauce

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Debs 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.

Added some red pepper for a slight bit of heat. Aside from that, i followed the recipe exactly as instructed. Very impressed with the simplicity and final product. P.S....if you play frank Sinatra in the backround while cooking the sauce, it does enhance the flavors. Personal opinion
