1/1 Photo of Marinara Sauce (With or Without Meat)
I got this recipe off the Internet a few years ago (I wish I could remember where!). It originally called for meat, which I still add, but lately I've been using it as a marinara sauce for main dishes that require spaghetti sauce. It's yummy, simple & comes together in no time. Plus you can easily cut it in half for whatever purposes! I use this for pizza-type recipes as well! Please feel free to play around with the spices!
