Easy Marinara Dipping Sauce

A super easy marinara sauce made using a little olive oil, tomato paste and good ole Rotel tomatoes is extremely versatile to use as a sauce, as a dipper and even as a sandwich spread.

Marinara Dipping Sauce

This marinara sauce recipe makes for a very quick and easy dipping sauce that is perfect for fried mozzarella cheese sticks, jalapeno poppers, pizza, fried pickles, onion rings, boiled shrimp, loaded potato skins, and any number of other quick finger foods.

To transform this into a pasta sauce, add a 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes, undrained, a couple of minced garlic cloves, a medium onion, chopped, Italian seasoning, a little red wine and some mushrooms. Saute vegetables in the oil before adding the tomato paste and proceed with the recipe as above.
