My very willing taste tester. I used rice pasta (gluten-free) and it turned a little mushy. I also made garlic bread out of hamburger buns that were a little dry, they turned out yummy!
The ingredients. I also add mushrooms...and then ground beef near the end.
The Marinara Sauce recipe comes from my BFF's Mother!! (Hi Kris and Ellen) She wrote the recipe down for me and brought it to my bridal shower nearly 18 years ago, and I have made the sauce often. I do not alter her recipe at all, I make it the same exact way...ALWAYS!! Tomatoes are so good for you, and I learned in one of my Nutrition classes that canned tomatoes are often better and more concentrated.
