Marinara Sauce I

Marinara Sauce I


"This is a delicious simple sauce which goes with anything. You can have it plain over pasta or make lasagna with it. You can make ziti or spaghetti and meatballs (just cook the meatballs in the sauce - it will take longer) or anything you can think of. It makes good, slightly too bland, pizza sauce. You can triple the batch and freeze it in jars."

This is great if you add 3 chopped chicken breast to sauce

My favorite is the Best Marinara Yet on this site. This one is good too, just a little plain and my fiance said too tangy.

I was very disappointed in this sauce. A few more herbs would make the difference I think. I probably won't make it again.

Quartering the tomatoes so that they melt into the sauce is an improvement, but this is an excellent sauce.

Mamma mia! This is-a mighty pizza sauce! It was like making sweet love to a tomato all over again. So tasty, it brought me way back to the good olden days, a week ago (sigh). It was a very d...
