Garden Marinara

Fresh Tasting Marinara Sauce

This year our garden (it's first year at our new home) is about ready to give us all these ingredients!  I'm so excited I think we are finally figuring out how to garden. (It only took us about 16 years of practice....so much of gardening is trial and error)  Still no lawn but we have a great garden I'll share pictures soon!

Marinara Sauce from the Garden

Last year when our garden was being very productive I made this and we loved it!  We put it over spiralized zucchini but you could put the zucchini in the sauce and use the sauce over whole grain noodles or as a dipping sauce for bread sticks etc. ENJOY!

It would be fine to make extra and freeze it, right?

This is delicious! (I think I used one little packet of stevia instead of the sucanat.)
