Mama’s Marinara Sauce

Mama's Marinara Sauce

I spent about 4 hours last night making the Cacciatore-Santoriello Marinara Sauce (can we say Italian!). Every taste of this and I feel like I’m in my Grandmothers kitchen 🙂 literally a taste of heaven in every bite.

I made a batch because I have Stuffed Shells on the menu this weekend and they’ll be dredged in this homemade sauce. For the Shells, I tweaked a recipe (as USUAL) that called for Prego and I cringed at just the thought of how that would ruin the dish.

Anywho, I can’t post the recipe because my Mother would like to keep it in the family 🙂 but I will say that adding meat to it before the Tomato goes it is an extra plus. Typically my Grandma adds her homemade meatballs, which is another family recipe to DIE for, but I added sausage because that’s all I had!

Stay tuned for Stuffed Shells with Beef, Spinach and cheese!
