Red Wine Herb Marinara is a delicious full-bodied pasta sauce. Filled with red wine, fresh herbs, onions, canned whole tomatoes, and garlic. Serve over pasta with Parmesan, as a pizza sauce, or a dipping sauce for breadsticks.
In August, my garden is overflowing with delicious fresh herbs, onions, and tomatoes.
My Red Wine Herb Marinara Sauce has little twist on a traditional marinara with a generous amount of red wine and a nice long simmer on the stove top.
I love marinara sauce and this is fantastic. I like to freeze the remaining sauce to use for a quick weeknight meal for my family -spaghetti and meatballs or a pizza anyone?
This recipe uses canned whole tomatoes. It is perfect to use last year's canned tomatoes. However, if you do not have canned at home tomatoes I recommend canned san marazano tomatoes.
This marinara sauce is so robust in flavor. The wine in the marinara sauce is delicious, and it is a perfect compliment to all of the fresh herbs.
