A Easy Everyday Red Wine Marinara Sauce

Forget the store bought pasta sauces in the jar. You can make your own marinara sauce, simple enough for everyday, yet tasty enough for all your family’s favorite dishes.

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.
