Oh, sure, you could just call it spaghetti sauce, but marinara sauce is a particular type of tomato/pasta sauce. It contains no meat, and often has chunky vegetables (onion, celery, tomato) in the sauce and is seasoned with oregano.. For many pasta lovers, marinara is a pure sauce—the best.
Brookshire’s sells plenty of marinara and other pasta/tomato sauces. Besides a hot plate of macaroni, though, how can you use it? Here are a few ideas:
- It’s a great dipping sauce for bread, veggies, meat and other foods. Serve warm.
- Spread it on a roll when serving hoagies or meatball sandwiches.
- Substitute for ketchup when making burgers. It’s also a great pizza sauce!
- Stir a bit into sautéed vegetables, like green beans or corn.
