All-Purpose Marinara Sauce

Recipe by  

"I use this recipe for marinara sauce as a base for all my pasta dishes. You can use the sauce 'as is' for a meatless spaghetti sauce. Or you can add just about any meat or seafood to add variety to your meals. In addition, you can add kidney beans and your favorite ingredients to make a super chili. My kids eat this pasta sauce like no other. They are happy campers when the house is filled with the aroma as this sauce is cooking."

This is a very chunky sauce. After adding the chopped green chiles and smelling the pot, I was a little wary, but it turned out great. I had it on homemade pizza, and when I was spreading it on the crust, again, I was a little wary about it being too chunky, but, again, it was great. I let it simmer longer than called for, and I think that helped break down the whole tomates. It has a great flavor and will be much better served plain on pasta than a regular sauce would be.

Horseradish makes this sauce. Pretty good!
