What do you do when you forget to buy a jar of marinara sauce at the store for your husband's mozzarella sticks? You improvise with whatever you have on hand. That’s exactly how this recipe came about. And I’m sure glad it did because I may never buy ready-made marinara sauce again! This sauce has the classic marinara flavor but it just tastes so much fresher, with a subtle herb and spice filled taste in every bite.

This recipe is incredibly easy to make. You literally just throw all the ingredients in a skillet and heat them up on two different temperatures, stirring along the way. Simmering the sauce at the end for about 20 minutes allows for the garlic, onion and spices to really soak into the sauce and create a delicious aroma and taste. Read on below for the super short list of ingredients and directions!
