Homemade Marinara Sauce

February 4, 2016

This is an easy and healthy alternative to store bought spaghetti sauces and marinara’s. When you can get a hold of some fresh tomatoes at the produce stand, I highly recommend giving this a try.

I am admittedly terrible at writing a recipe. I season to taste, therefore I don’t have measurements on my spices. Forgive me.
