Upon spring cleaning last week, my husband discovered an old family recipe book full of cooking treasures! He chose this wonderful marinara sauce recipe his dad used to cook when he was young. It was a very intricate recipe that took nearly 5 hours to cook - and that was without a crockpot!
Wonderful aromas filled the house and brought back great memories for my husband. He told us stories of how much his dad enjoyed cooking - and now my husband can pass on those wonderful traditions and memories to our family.....
He ended up canning several batches of sauce and generously offered it to family and friends!
So far we've made spaghetti of course, and today I used it for a penne pasta bake with chicken, mushrooms, basil and asiago cheese - it's a very versatile sauce - and very very yummy indeed!
