Notes about this recipe

    In a sea of available simple marinara sauces , this one is really good! I particularly like the idea of blending the basil and whole tomatoes together at the beginning ( maybe this appears in other recipes but I've never seen it and I certainly didn't think of it myself). The only additions I make include a good pinch of red pepper flakes, a big splash of red wine into the onions/garlic before adding the tomatoes and I do use less oil than she calls for.

    Excellent and easy. Keeps well in freezer.
