Often, the simpler the recipe, the better it tastes. My marinara sauce, with only six ingredients, is so very perfect in its minimalism. This juicy sauce is the best thing to eat with a big bowl of freshly cooked spaghetti. Plus, dinner will be on the table in less than half an hour. What could be better?
