Noelle's Tasty Tips

 

I like to introduce the garlic at this point with the herbs rather than with the onions and bacon so it won’t add a bitter or burnt flavor to the marinara sauce 🙂

 

Marinara SaucePour in the diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Keep stirring and cook for 5 more minutes or until warm and bubbly!  I will taste it at this point to check for the right amount of salt.
