    AcadiaTwo's Note:

    This is my version of marinara sauce for pasta! Yummy! I omit the salt as I use canned crushed tomatoes which I find for us to have enough salt. However, if you use fresh tomatoes I would add the salt for your taste. Enjoy!

      Wonderful! Made this in advance so when I came home all I had to do was heat this up and serve it with some meatballs (heated) that I had in the freezer and served them over pasta. A green salad was served along side. Definately will make this one simple and delicious!

      Great sauce! The extra flavor and nutrition from the bell pepper is a nice touch. Thanks for sharing! Veg*n Swap 31

      The DH really loved this one!! I'm not a huge fan of store bought sauce and this is a great reason why!! Very easy & big on flavor. DH isn't a huge tomato guy so the addition of the pepper was perfect and I just blended it all up after adding the tomatoes so there weren't any dreaded chunks for the DH. Will make this again!! Thanks Acadia!!
