Marinara Sauce (Basic Pasta Sauce)Make on Fresco
In Australia, we probably wouldn’t call anything without seafood in it ‘marinara’, but, in fact, the Italian origin of marinara sauce is that it was made and eaten by mariners. It is a deep-red tomato sauce and is pretty damn good on almost anything that requires sauce (you will see it referenced many times in Tenina's America the cookbook). It may just become a fridge staple in your house as it has in mine.
