I pinned this recipe quite some time ago, and the more things I pinned, the further down the page this one was pushed so I rarely saw it when meal planning. But, J loves marinara sauce, and I remembered that I had this one saved so I scrolled through until I found it. Thank goodness I did, because this was one tasty dish!!
