A simple meatless tomato sauce, marinara can be tossed with freshly cooked pasta, used as a dipping sauce, or incorporated into dishes like lasagna and eggplant Parmesan. What's the definitive recipe? According to Chowhounds, it's as simple as olive oil, garlic, good canned tomatoes, and a half hour of simmering.
