Marinara Pasta Sauce (Tomato Pasta Sauce with Garlic) is a popular variation of the tomato pasta sauce. Contrary to what the name might suggest (‘marinara’
is Italian for “sailor-style”) this sauce doesn’t contain seafood, while it is made of
very few ingredients — just olive oil, garlic, tomatoes and herbs.
The story explains how the sauce came to be named for the sailors. Mostly
is due to its ingredients – oil, tomato sauce, garlic and dried herbs – which
traveled well and didn’t spoil easily, as meat or fish did. The ingredients could be
assembled quickly and easily, in about the same time it took pasta to cook, and
the two together made a tasty, filling and inexpensive meal for men at sea.
By the time large numbers of southern Italians emigrated to America in the early
1900s, the sauce was such a way of life that they made it a classic in this country
as well.

Whether you’re using it as a base for soup, a sauce for pizza (in Italy
we’re used to prepare “Pizza alla Marinara”), or for meat and fish dishes,
this Tomato sauce is a guaranteed winner.

This is perfect to use in baked pasta recipes, eggplant parmesan or when
you need a quick dipping sauce for zucchini sticks, mozzarella sticks or
anything you like to serve with sauce.
