Ahh, sweet Marinara. Perfect as a dipping sauce or a topping for anything. It's one of those classic sauces that just works.
While it's easiest to buy a jar of this red gold at the grocery store, there's always a long list of unpronounceable ingredients listed on the back. For something as simple as Marinara, that always baffles my brain.
While this recipe is in no way traditional or the classic way of making marinara, it's a quick homemade marinara "hack", if you want to look at it that way.
A quick throw-together recipe that gives you all the flavor in non of the time.
