    Chef Emstar's Note:

    Marinara is traditionally a very simple sauce. You can certainly substitute fresh herbs for the dried ones if you have them on hand. That would be 3 or 4 sprigs oregano, 2 sprigs thyme, and a small handful of basil chiffonade.

      This is how marinara sauce should be made! Simple is better with true marinara and this hits it right on. Instead of dried herbs, I used a whole sprig of basil on top, let it cook with the sauce and then fished it out.

      Wonderful garlic flavor! This is so easy and has a nice flavor and texture. I made Sunday as written and think next time will add just a bit more balsamic vinegar as it kind of got lost with all the other flavors, used in the making of Smothered Chicken Breasts With Spinach which I made on Monday. Will be keeping both recipes on hand, thanks for the post.
