When I was trying to figure out what to do today for dinner, I seriously had a list of six new recipes to try. As I made my grocery list, I had every intention of making a homemade marinara to go with this. However, with the other recipes on my list, I hung my head in shame as I bought a jar of bottled marinara sauce. *Enter blood-curdling scream* I really could taste the difference, but this was still a great recipe. It's fairly easy, too. Next time, when I don't have a million other things going on in the kitchen, I will make homemade sauce. I loved the pepperoni and provolone in there. I added fresh basil, too, and that was quite the tasty little addition.
