Easy Skillet Marinara Sauce
A quick, one pan marinara sauce that can easily used for just about anything.
Without a doubt, there's at least one night every week when I have no desire to stand in the kitchen and make dinner. Of course I still need to feed Ryan and myself, so I'll muster up some energy and make the easiest thing I can think of.
Today is not one of those days. It's the weekend, my favorite time of the week to cook. So I made Baked Spinach Meatballs and a quick little red sauce to make Meatball Subs. What turned up was a delicious Marinara Sauce with a little spice and a lot of flavor.
It took no time at all to make, and I have enough to save for later this week when all I want to do is faceplant on the couch.
