Basic Marinara Sauce

For those of you who automatically got transferred over and didn’t notice a change(I hope that’s even possible!) I’m now at my new home at  If you went to my old wordpress site you would have been automatically transferred here, so please change your bookmarks and make sure your feed reader is pointing in the right direction – I don’t want to lose anyone!  The links are on the right hand side to sign up in a feed reader by RSS or by email.

I still have quite a few things to work on and sort out, but I’m super excited to have the freedom of being on my own and can’t wait to make my site a better experience for everyone.

For the first post at my new home, I thought I’d post something nice and simple.  I may have been the weirdest little kid ever, but I didn’t really like tomato sauce.  I don’t know what it was about it, it just didn’t appeal to me.  I am so glad I outgrew that.  Honestly, this is one of the first things I ever really knew how to cook and it just keeps getting better.  This recipe is also good with a pound of ground beef, but I usually use a half a pound and cook it separately and add it after I’ve taken out a serving of sauce for myself.  Either way it’s yummy 🙂

Isn’t it funny how a lot of smaller children really don’t like a sauce, my grandson just likes the noodles. Really hope he does grow into liking a sauce, grama likes hiding lots of vegetables in there.
But do love your marinara sauce, nice and simple but wholesome. And like you I don’t care for meat in mine and do the same thing, take mine out first and then add the meat. Thanks for sharing and look forward to trying your marinara sauce.

Yes, I occasionally hide other veggies in there too 😀 I’m very fortunate both my kids like the sauce, at least for now.
