Making your own big batch of marinara sauce makes you feel like a rockstar. It is very easy….you can spice it up or down…salt more or less…and when you family comes home at night they will smell the goodness and realize that you are indeed the rockstar mom that you have been telling them you are all these years. Win win right?! So, the next fallish Sunday….make up some sauce and enjoy. This recipe will yield enough to freeze up for another use…perfect….

I suppose you could even sauté the onion and garlic and then transfer everything to a slow cooker and let it simmer on low all day—if you aren’t around to keep an eye on the stove. Whatever works:)
