Marinara sauce is a red sauce made with tomatoes, garlic, and herbs. It is typically used as a pasta sauce, but can also be used on pizzas, in casseroles, and as a dipping sauce.
The origins of marinara sauce are unclear, but it is likely that the sauce was created by Italian immigrants in the United States. The sauce became popular in the early 1900s, and recipes for it began appearing in cookbooks and magazines.
Today, there are many different recipes for marinara sauce, but most include tomatoes, garlic, onion, and herbs such as basil and oregano. Some recipes also call for wine, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese.
