Easy Marinara Sauce is a big batch recipe that is a base for So many pasta dishes.
If making food ahead to make meal preps faster are a interest then this is one of the most basic recipes to make and have on hand.
Add in ground turkey, beef, sausage, or chicken to make lasagna, spaghetti, or goulash. Zoodles and sauce are great for a meatless Monday dinner:)
This pasta sauce is so easy which is always a winner with me!
