There is nothing quite like a fresh pot of marinara sauce. I love pasta and pizza and while I'll put store bought sauce on them in a pinch, it's totally worth it to make my own sauce.
The sauce recipe that caught my eye was the Buttery Tomato Sauce with Onion. There are just 4 ingredients other then salt and pepper and it's super easy to make. It also has a lot of flavor and is great on pasta or as a sauce on a pizza. I made the sauce this past Sunday to put on a pizza for dinner. The entire kitchen smelled wonderful as it was simmering on the stove. It made the whole house warm and cozy.
I did make one change to the recipe. Instead of removing the onions at the end of the cooking time, I diced one of the onions and left it in the sauce. I think it added a little more flavor to the sauce. This recipe makes a lot of sauce so I froze the sauce I didn't use to put on my meatballs this weekend! This is seriously the easiest tomato sauce you are ever going to make and you'll be surprised by just how flavorful it is.
