Our Southern Italian inspired marinara seasoning is a savory blend of herbs and spices. Marinara sauce is increasing in popularity and is derived from the Italian word marinaro meaning “of the sea,” or “sailor’s style.” Its simplicity and easy to make feature allows it to be used in many great Italian dishes or as a dipping sauce for appetizers. For a dipping sauce you can omit the mushrooms and Italian sausage.*
