“Never spend money on store shelf sauce again! An upgrade from Easy Marinara Dipping Sauce for the Lazy, I like to use this as my main pasta sauce as it has the consistency and taste I really like but without icky tomato chunks: it's cheap and easy to make! And being animal-product-free, also vegan. I like it way better than jarred; and it's easy to jar too and has a long fridge life. For Italian seasoning I used Italian Seasoning and there are some other good ones on here, but storebought is good too. This is perfect for all household sizes but especially singles/small households because it doesn't yield a ton. (But if you need more, it is easy to double and triple.)”
14 oz
