Homemade marinara sauce is simple and simply delicious. Store-bought sauces inevitably have sugar or other unnecessary additives. This is a great recipe to double and, when cool, keep extra jars in the refrigerator (or freezer) for busy nights. Cook some pasta, add shrimp or quickly sauce some veggies, toss with marinara sauce and dinner is ready.
It also makes a lovely gift. Place in a jar, tie with a ribbon and a “homemade” or “made with love” note.
