Homemade Marinara

In the past, I have always bought canned or jar marinara sauce. I figured it would be quite easy to make from scratch, so I found a recipe that was not too complicated. This flavor tastes so much better that the prepackaged sauce. The fresher the ingredients used, the stronger the flavor for sure! When I made this sauce, our fridge was packed from all the cooking I have been doing. So I froze it to use when I am short on time.
