Marinara Sauce
Marinara sauce (Italian salsa marinara or salsa alla marinara) is a type of tomato sauce that originated in Naples after the Spaniards had introduced the tomato from the New World. The word marinara is derived from marinaro, which is Italian for "of the sea". Marinara sauce in Italy and some other Mediterranean countries is commonly used with various pasta dishes including spaghetti, penne and fusilli. The base for the sauce is made from olive oil, ripe tomatoes, garlic, and herb.
