Marinara Sauce

Making homemade marinara doesn’t take long and is fairly easy. To me it beats opening a bottle of Ragu and dumbing down your masterpiece. Whether its for your pizza, ravioli or just to dip a few bread sticks, if you have the time, make your own sauce. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few good bottled sauce out there but the sense of accomplishment makes your own sauce taste better.
