Tony's Marinara Sauce
Marinara sauce is an important component in a lot of the food we eat. While my mom owns her kitchen and controls everything that goes on in it, my Dad helps out a lot. They are a great team and its wonderful to watch them in action. My Dad, Tony - aka, Mary's Sous Chef makes the sauce. We make enough to freeze and the recipe below makes about 8-10 cups.
