What? Canned tomatoes in a tomato sauce? Yes, that's right. Garden tomatoes are only available for a short time, but crushed canned tomatoes are on shelves year-round and packed with flavor.

Homemade Marinara Sauce for Canning

This is a great sauce for serving over your favorite pasta, on pizzas, eggplant parm, chicken parm, lasagna, baked ziti or manicotti.

Extra Meaty Spaghetti Sauce

This is an old family recipe. My grandma used to make it and it is the best sauce I have ever had. No restaurant or bottled sauce will ever compare. The sauce takes a long time to cook but it freezes very well. I break mine down into family meal size tupperware and freeze for a quick, easy, homemade meal, pull it out of the freezer to thaw before you leave for work.Submitted by FEFERNATOR
