I had a hankering for pasta on Sunday night so I decided to make a quick marinara sauce. I found some mushrooms in the fridge and grabbed a few things from the pantry then whipped up this sauce. Quick. Simple. Delicious. My kind of recipe! My kids absolutely loved this sauce and so did my husband and me. It was delicious on spaghetti but would also be great with tortellini, ravioli, or lasagna too.
How to Make Mushroom Marinara
Heat the olive oil in a small Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the mushroom, onion, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring often, for 5-7 minutes, or until tender. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute then add the tomato sauce.
Taste and season with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and a touch of sugar (if desired). Add the chopped basil and ladle over prepared pasta. Enjoy.
