We very much enjoyed some of this sauce this evening over angel hair pasta: the rest I've stashed in the freezer to enjoy on other occasions. Very easy to prepare, although I made a few changes to meet our taste preferences. I used fresh mushrooms, proportionally more (500g) and used a 50/50 combination of my Vegetable Stock 135453 and merlot instead of the water. Very much liked the paprika in this and the range of vegetables. Thanks for sharing this recipe, weekend cooker! When what's in the freezer runs out, I'll be making this again. It still intrigues me that Americans call this a marinara sauce; in Australia, a marinara sauce contains seafood, so if you're in Australia, do remember that!
