Marinara Sauce

When I started Yipson Foods I knew I would need a very versatile Marinara Sauce. I wanted to make one sauce that could be used for various recipes.
I ended up making this basic sauce that we used in Baked Ziti, Lasagna and Eggplant Stackers. We also used this sauce on Whole Wheat Pizza, Spaghetti, Smashed Turkey Meatball Burgers and so much more!
I love this sauce because it is easy to make, works great with most recipes, it freezes well and most of all it received very high compliments from the kids we served in the schools.
