Double Batch of Versatile Marinara

Above: A double batch of KQ Marinara Sauce on the stove.


The Kitchen Queers Marinara Sauce recipe is easy to make and so versatile you can use it in lots of different recipes.  Of course served over pasta is the obvious choice.  We also use KQ Marinara Sauce in our pie crust Calzone recipe, for making pizza and dolloped over meatballs.
