    It's a classic, indeed, but benefited from a few gratings of nutmeg.

    I love this recipe. I probably make it a few times a month. I always use San Marzano canned tomatoes from a local speciality grocery store, but I also change it a bit - I add some julienned white onions, sliced cherry tomatoes and a little bit of heavy cream before I let simmer. It is delicious, fresh and my favorite easy spaghettic recipe.

    This recipe is wonderful. I have made numerous marinara sauces throughout the years and this is the best quickly prepared sauce that I have come across so far.

    Love love love this recipe! One question I have is, what if I want to use fresh tomatoes? I currently have an abundance of Roma and round variety tomatoes from the garden and would like to use them in this recipe. I have canned some tomatoes, but was wondering if I could skip the canning and make the sauce from the tomatoes. Just blanch, peel and core the tomatoes? Any suggestions?

    This marinara sauce turns out perfect every time. My son is the pickiest eater in the world, especially about marinara, & he loves this recipe. Better than any store bought sauce!
