Basic Marinara

 

A good Dutch oven or stockpot can be a lifesaver during the long winter months, allowing sauces, stews, and one-pot meals to simmer away for hours and develop amazing layers of flavor. Just like a basic chicken stock, marinara is a great recipe to keep in your back pocket. It's the perfect base recipe to build several meals around, and it freezes beautifully for safe keeping. What's not to love?
