10 Minute Marinara Sauce

Submitted by: PIXIESTIX6669

Introduction

Being Italian, I never, ever used a commercial brand of pasta sauce...Making a homemade Marinara sauce takes 10 mins, especially when using organic tomato paste...it's so sweet and delicious, it doesn't need to cook long to reduce tomato acidity...try it...you'll be glad u did! This versatile sauce is great to freeze in small batches for later use over pasta, grains and in other recipes. All sorts of extras can be added...everything from white truffle oil to mushrooms to red peppers...adding capers and anchovies transforms it into a Puttanesca sauce...Enjoy!
