      Awesome! I've made MANY marinara sauces and this one is one of my fav's! Quick, perfect, tasty.....everything you could ask for. I used dried oregano and double the garlic but followed everything else as stated. Thank you!

      Was going to give four stars, but the men in the house loved it so much I went with five (also because of ease of preparation!)<br/><br/>I'm always looking for a quick marinara that lets me use fresh basil, and this was a winner! I was not as enthusiastic as my boyfriend and my brother, but they loved it so much I'm wondering if maybe I have a cold or something blocking my taste buds? <br/><br/>Either way, easy, quick and delicious!

      The sauce was very good. I made a half recipe since I was trying it for the first time. I used a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes. I also used my stick blender to really smooth out the sauce. I found I had to add about 1/2 tsp sea salt and about 1 Tbsp brown sugar. After I added those two ingredients....it was perfect! I will definitely make up a lot of this during the summer when I have my fresh herbs growing in the garden. Should be good on my Chicken Parm too. I made this for a Braciole tonight. Thanks for posting. It was quick and easy! UPDATE: I make this all the time now - love it! I always have some in the freezer in small containers for chicken parm and things like that. I like it because it has no meat or cheese in it and I can add it to just about anything because of that!
