I whipped up something quick (sort of a pantry meal + sausage) for dinner the other night.
I had some whole wheat penne, Giada Roasted Garlic Marinara, Mozzarella, Parmesan, and French Bread.
The bread was the special feature as I added some key ingredients to it before I baked it. I spread about 1 tablespoon butter on the inside, sprinkled garlic powder, kosher salt, and pamesan cheese. Baked it for about 10 minutes while the other ingredients for my meal were cooking.
It was delish. Very buttery and garlic-y.
And I pretty much love salt on anything, so that was the perfect little kick.
Overall, though, I wasn’t terribly impressed with Giada’s Roasted Garlic Marinara. I’ve had better. I’ve even tried making my own from scratch and it wasn’t anything to write home about!
Do you have a “go to” special marinara sauce?
I’d love suggestions.
