Grainless Marinara Sauce

This sauce is perfect! It’s so simple and versatile.  I much prefer making my own sauce, it tastes so much better than the store bought stuff, plus I like knowing it doesn’t contain any added preservatives and refined sugars. It freezes really well, so it’s great to make a big batch, then you can pull it out of the freezer as needed for a quick meal. Use it for pizza, pasta, meatballs, chicken etc. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, paleo, vegetarian, vegan, nut free, soy free and refined sugar free.
