Red Wine Marinara Sauce

Red Sauce For Pasta or Pizza

Red Wine Marinara Sauce
Serves 4
A really simple homemade sauce that is so good. I like to serve it over a Rotini so that the sauce really sticks to the pasta. Leftover sauce is great for freezing and using on your favorite pizza dough. I also use my hand blender instead of putting the tomatoes in the food processor making for a quick weeknight meal.
