Marinara is a famous Italian sauce with strong flavors and made from tomatoes, onions and various spices. This red sauce generally tends to taste more spicy than most tomato sauces and contains a lot of garlic, oregano, basil and sometimes chili. One reason marinara sauce is so popular is because it is very easy and fast to make. Besides that, marinara sauce can also be a basic sauce for various other Italian foods.
I myself admit that I am the first type, namely the cook. I like to be creative with herbs, various spices and ingredients used. Adding to that and that, reducing this and that, and replacing this with it, does not have to always follow the original recipe, but more depends on the availability of available ingredients. In addition, of course cooking is an activity that is much more relaxed and not ‘complicated’ such as making cakes or cakes that require scales, sieves, whiskers, ovens, patience, patience and of course hundreds of techniques that sometimes make the head dizzy before starting.
now we are heading to the spaghetti alla marinara recipe which this time I share my own surprise, considering this sauce is very easy to make, very famous and flexible to accompany various other Italian a la foods such as pizza or calzones. During this time if you want to eat spaghetti with marinara sauce on it or pizza with marinara sauce topping, I always go to the restaurant. As if the name of the marinara has made a ‘blink’ that makes it definitely ‘complicated’, and various recipes on the internet usually require to use difficult ingredients.
