Marinara Sauce

Recipe by Bliss

I got this from the newspaper years ago. I love it served over rigatoni with a little parmesan sprinkled on top. IT DOES NOT REQUIRE OREGANO, OR ANY OTHER ITALIAN HERBS. It's absolutely perfect just as is.

it is almost exactly like mine that I learned from my x- BIL who was from Naples Italy and a Chef who owned an Italian restaurant. The hardly ever used Oregano in any dish since it is not the traditional way in Naples. Basil is the main ingredient in almost all his dishes. I loved this!
