Oh yes – say hello to my homemade marinara sauce. You can literally get all of the ingredients for this recipe at the market or out of your garden right now.
Spaghetti was a staple in my house growing up! And I still love it. It is such a great comfort food and I have learned that marinara sauce tastes great on all types of noodles like brown rice, quinoa, butternut squash, yam or zucchini. They even taste good when the sauce is poured over pre made butternut squash or yam fries. Yes – I like my sauce.
This sauce is loaded with fresh ingredients and is a great vegan or paleo dinner option. To make it vegan, just use coconut sugar instead of honey in the sauce (it helps cut the acidity of the tomatoes) and place over any noodles that work for your. For the paleo option, you can add the optional meat and then enjoy with zucchini, butternut squash and/or yam noodles (shredded works just great as well).
Feel free to add mushrooms, carrots, celery, spinach (I like the arugula in this recipe even more than spinach – as it creates such an amazing flavor) or whatever veggies you like. My kids gobbled this down so I am glad the recipe makes a ton. This recipe is enough for 4 servings, plus 2 full mason jars and leftovers for the next day. So make it once and you will eat for days. If you doing meal prep, this is a great recipe. It keeps fresh for 4 days in the fridge and freezes extremely well.Read More
