Mushroom Marinara sauce

creamy marinara sauce

This is a darn simple yet creative twist on a regular marinara sauce that beautifully compliments meatballs. I make this when I’m bored of making a regular red pasta sauce.

You’ll notice that there are no fancy ingredients or much culinary skills involved in this one, but wait until you taste this sauce before you make a judgement!
