Quick & Easy Marinara Sauce Recipe

Spaghetti SauceSpaghetti Sauce

I was getting ready to finally post up my menu plan for the week because, once again, I’m a day late.  And, I realized that I have wanted to post up my quick and easy Spaghetti Sauce recipe or otherwise known as Marinara Sauce.

When I cook, it’s never an exact science so these will just be *suggested amounts*.  So, if you are looking for a simple recipe to throw on top of some macaroni for a quick dinner or even let simmer all day with meatballs, sausage and turn it into a nice Italian Gravy. Also, it’s great to use with my Best Lasagna Recipe.

When I cook, it’s never an exact science so these will just be *suggested amounts*. So, if you are looking for a simple recipe to throw on top of some macaroni for a quick dinner or even let simmer all day with meatballs, sausage or, like my grandmothers did, throw in any leftover meat in the frig, then this is a great recipe for that.

This should be enough for 2 meals so take the rest and freeze for an quick and easy second meal.
