Marinara sauce is a popular, robust Italian sauce made with tomatoes, onions, and herbs. A lot of times you will hear this sauce called “gravy.” Marinara sauce is usually a little spicier than other standard tomato sauces due to the amount of garlic & a little crushed red pepper. This sauce is easy to prepare but needs to cook for about 3 hrs. It is versatile and can be used in various Italian dishes, you can also transform marinara into a fantastic cream sauce (vodka sauce w/o the vodka). Once you make a big batch, store it in the freezer. Beware…..once you make your own sauce, you will no longer enjoy the jarred stuff.
