I love to eat this quick marinara sauce atop linguini, over cheesy polenta, or even slathered on a hearty fried-egg sandwich. It whips up in less than 30 minutes, and goes great with all kinds of tasty add-ins; I’ve used everything from roasted veggies to canned clams. This recipe is infinitely flexible, so don’t run to the store to buy thyme if you’ve got sage growing on your windowsill.
