Marinara Sauce

Best Paleo Recipes

This recipe is very similar to that of my bolognese. There are fewer ingredients in the marinara, and this sauce is a smoother texture since there is no meat in it. I use this sauce typically for spaghetti squash and meatballs or even for homemade pizza sauce (I know pizza isn’t paleo but I’m working on figuring that one out).
