Reprinted with permission of Penguin Putnam, Inc., New York, New York.
"...If you like your marinara sauce with big chunks of veggies in it, then this is the one you'll want to make. The canned tomatoes, plus fresh mushrooms, onion and garlic make for a thicker sauce that works great over your favorite pasta creation."

1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
dash ground black pepper
