Easy Low Sodium Marinara SauceBy cukebookThere's nothing like a good, hot marinara sauce over pasta. It was a staple in my household growing up. Almost every Sunday night you could expect a dish of pasta with my moms homemade tomato sauce. She made the same sauce every weekend for years and years. After going to school for culinary arts and finding out that tomato sauce was considered a "mother sauce" in cooking, I fell even more in love with marinara sauce, and sauces in general. This low sodium marinara sauce recipe is easy to make, and tastes great. I normally double, or even triple the recipe and freeze the rest for a day I don't feel like cooking dinner. Simply pull the sauce out of the freezer in the morning, and heat it up in a sauce pot at night. I do like to add some salt to this recipe because it helps with the acidity of the tomatoes a bit, but you're more than welcome to make this a salt-free tomato sauce by removing the salt all together. Let me know it tastes in the comments below!
