    Drifter Gurl's Note:

    This marinara can be thick or thin depending on the length of time you cook it. The sweetness comes from the caramelized root vegetables. All seasoning additions can be adjusted to your taste, or if you don't want to measure you can use a pre packaged spaghetti sauce seasoning pouch!
