Marinara Sauce

Jill Dalton
It has been many years that I have tried making the perfect Marinara sauce and today I can tell you that I think I have found it! This sauce is rich and earthy and full of flavor. Thanks to one of my favorite websites This website is full of natural home care recipes, healthy personal care recipes and food recipes. She is adorable, the mother of six and is one of my personal heroes. I tried her pasta sauce recipe and it is great but to make it nutritarian I had to tweak it a little bit but I still think it is pretty true to her original recipe.
