Marinara recipe

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Richard Walker, Tuesday, 5 Oct 2021, 01:19



We had chicken breasts wrapped in prosciutto, drenched in marinara sauce, garnished with fresh basil, with grilled vegetable sides: green capsicum, fine beans, sweet potato, mushrooms.

Marinara sauce: cook finely chopped onions in olive oil until translucent, then finely chopped garlic until smell wafts off.

Add tinned plum tomatoes, then dried oregano and chopped fresh basil. And a chilli. The latter is hard to gauge, my sauce needed to be hotter, but I feared overshooting. Best idea (from my co-cook) is use a whole chilli with a slash in it, taste the sauce at half time, then fish the chilli out and either a. bung it or b. chop it up and put it back.

Verdict: Super but some way to go. 4 stars.

Joke: How would you rate the Solar System? Only one star.

[Not my joke, I don’t know its origins.]
