Bright and unexpected, using ingredients you probably already have on hand; this lemon marinara is a treat and a welcome change from your basic marinara sauce.
If you’ve ever watched America’s Next Top Model (which I used to, religiously) you’ve heard the phrase “but make it fashion”. It’s Tyra’s go to. Blank, but make it fashion. My version of that phrase is “but make it lemon”. Take anything in the world, basically and add lemon to it, and then add a little bit more lemon and then I’m satisfied. I’m not sure where I found this recipe, or if I made it up myself. I do know that I’ve been making it for more than a decade, and if it’s a recipe that I found somewhere, I’d love to know where so that I could find the person who wrote it and give them a giant hug for giving me one of my favorite recipes. It’s a little unexpected, and the lemon zest just brightens up the tomato sauce, and pairs perfectly with copious amounts of fresh grated parmesan cheese. It’s my ultimate comfort food, and one of the few recipes that I always have all of the ingredients on hand for. If you like a lemon, give this one a try.
