When I first made this spicy cranberry sauce with Fresno peppers about 10 years ago, I was so surprised at how easy and good it was that I vowed to lose the canned stuff completely. Well, my husband wasn’t quite ready (and still isn’t) to give up the can, but this new sauce found its way onto the table and has been there ever since.
When you need a quick and easy dinner to impress some unexpected guests, Marinara sauce with your choice of protein and pasta is the way to go.
Marinara, meaning “sailor-style,” is a classic Italian tomato-based sauce. Marinara is made with only a few ingredients – tomatoes (preferably San Marzano), onions, garlic, herbs, and extra virgin olive oil.
