Rachelle's Marinara

This recipe came from my good friend and neighbor, Rachelle. It has become our favorite pizza sauce. I like to make a double batch then ladle it into canning jars and freeze it for later use. My son Alex likes to have it as a dip with gluten free bread sticks.

And here is the recipe for this super easy and flavorful sauce....

  1. I'm dabbling in pizza this week too! Headed to So Ut for the slot canyons, hoping for warm weather. Have you previewed spunky coconut blog. Seems right up your alley. Happy eating! Terina
