Marinara sauce is the best and simplest Italian sauce that we call tomato and basil sauce. A really simple sauce with an unmistakable taste. The ingredients of this tasty sauce are onion, herbs that you can add to your taste, extra virgin olive oil, chilli if you like, and tomatoes. I prefer to use whole canned tomatoes, because they are more genial than crushed tomatoes. In summer it’s possible to make this sauce with fresh tomatoes and I recommend you try it for the taste is even more intense. With marinara sauce it’s possible to prepare many dishes, from classic spaghetti to meatballs, to eggplant parmigiana.

I prefer whole garlic, but if you love a more intense taste you can add it sliced or chopped or grated.
The sauce can be kept for 3-4 days in a refrigerator. You can put it in closed containers and freeze it.
