Yummy. Chunky, Tomato-ey (yes, its a word) Marinara. I love it and it’s uses go far beyond just being a sauce for spaghetti.

Today’s post is about marinara. No, not that stuff you see in a jar, all that stuff is great in a pinch, put you can totally make your own, and freeze for later!
All you need is:
Ok, well that not ALL you need, but you only need a few more items outside of those four. Ingredient list and recipe is below.

1 can whole tomatoes
½ cup water
1 tablespoon fresh garlic
