Sona’s Marinara Sauce

There is nothing better than a homemade Marinara sauce! I am telling you, you will never get this flavor from a jar. First of all making your own Marinara is so satisfying and relaxing. The house smells amazing and everyone shows up in the kitchen asking what’s cooking ☺. I am so trilled for this opportunity to share my version of this Italian classic with you! BTW I once a week I make 2 batches and keep in the fridge for those nights when I need to whip up something fast yet healthy and flavorful. Enjoy!
