As some of you may know I love pasta! I have tried a ton of different marinara sauces prepared in many different recipes. I have found a few that are pretty good, many of which are on this site, but I created this recipe to meet all of the requirements I look for in a perfect sauce. A little sweet, a little spicy, not too watery, not too chunky, and not too difficult. I have served this recipe many times and it always gets a five star review. The secret ingredient here is the anchovy, you can't tell it is in there but it adds amazing depth of flavor to this sauce. I really hope that you all enjoy this!
