This sauce, which works in all manner of Italian dishes calling for red sauce, blends thinking of Sicilian and Northern Italian former in-laws. It’s loaded with meats, but you can reserve sauce without meat, too. I’ve thrown in ideas for a vegetarian, too. Feeds a small army. Freezes well.
Who likes ease and options? Our garden harvest of tomatoes led to this marinara, which incorporates ingredients from Leek and Spinach Stuffed Bread: leek, garlic, spinach and an Italilan-inspired blend of herbs and spices.
Simple Marinara was birthed as a vegetarian and gluten free dietary option for an Italian dish. If fresh tomatoes are used it contains no added sodium. It pairs well with spaghetti squash.
Cherry Red Marinara was born from an unexpectedly large cherry tomato harvest from a volunteer tomato plant. It is vegetarian friendly and contains no added sodium.
