The sautéed garlic and onion added to the blender for a quick puree adds a much more aggressive taste in this sauce ;) Even though buying a jar of marinara is cheaper, you can't compare the taste of homemade sauce! After receiving a bushel full of garden tomatoes, I got adventurous and made this Homemade Sauce. It's so easy a beginner cook would impress guests! After my family raved about this, I may never buy jar sauce again. This sauce can be made and used as a spaghetti or marinara.... I used it as part of my Chicken Parmesan -- This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and frozen! I used dried herbs, you can substitute fresh - just be sure to triple the amount ;)
