"A simple and flavorful marinara sauce that can be used instead of store-bought spaghetti sauce. I like it served hot over cooked pasta and topped with fresh-grated Parmesan cheese."

"Very nice sauce. Not too sweet, not too sour. I will definitely be making again. Thank you."
"I love this simple sauce, it's perfect on pizzas and pasta, and any number of ingredients can be added to it if you want to bulk it up some. I probably use more fresh herbs than called for, I just snip off a handful each of basil and oregano from my herb garden, and they are really what makes this sauce stand out."
"really enjoyed how fast and easy it was to make, and how tasty it is. I modified mine a bit, but this is a wonderful base from which to vary to your family's tastes, and I certainly enjoyed it."
"This is a wonderful marinara sauce! I will NEVER buy marinara sauce again. I love the garlic-y taste and added 2-3 more cloves. I also added a little tomato paste, to thicken it up a bit. Thanks for this fabulous recipe!"
"Simple, delicious, and the kids love it! I leave out the sugar and add extra garlic and a little red wine, which are just personal preferences. I also don't bother pureeing the sauce. I find it breaks down quite nicely in the pan, so for me, the pureeing isn't necessary. I'd add some crushed red pepper to the sauce if it weren't for the kids, but since they couldn't handle that, I just add some to my own serving. We make this a lot. So much better than that canned stuff!"
"My husband and I generally prefer a meat sauce, But this is great. Very light. i tried it because my 19 yo DSS is a vegetarian. He liked it so much that he took the recipe back to college with him!!"
"Really enjoyed the sauce, I used it with an awsome meatball recipe (32619). The only changes I would make next time is more garlic, and I would add parmasan cheese. To complete our meal we made meatball sandwiches on french bread (81211). Thank you for posting."
"This was easy to make. I used 28 ounces of tomatoes from our garden and seeded them. My oldest said I should have peeled the tomatoes. I told her that sounds like just the right job for her the next time I make this recipe. I think I may try adding more basil or oregano next time I make this. Debbie thank you for sharing your recipe with us. "
"This was delicious and so fast and easy to make. A few ingredients and presto...a very versatile sauce. It was thick, zesty, tangy and oh so flavourful. I enjoyed this very much, I served it on cheese & seafood manicotti. I'll be making this often. Thanks so much for sharing Deb."
"This was really easy to put together and I was happy with the end results!! I served it over Chicken Parmesan!! Thanks for posting!!!"
"Absolutely superb! I opted to add in some carrots to mine for some extra vegetable and added a dash of red pepper to the batch I made as pizza sauce. The base alone is perfect for pasta but I like to make a double batch to freeze and use for many dishes."
"Quick, easy, fresh tasting sauce. I used it for Meatball Sandwiches. :) "
