Marinara (mariner’s) sauce is a southern Italian tomato sauce usually made with tomatoes, garlic, herbs, onions and sometimes seafood. However, its many variations can include the addition of capers, olives and spices. Traditional southern Italian cuisine uses this sauce to add flavour to pasta, rice, seafood and pizza. This easy marinara sauce can also be used as a dipping sauce such as with our Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Tenders.
