I used to try to make everything homemade. Cakes, brownies, sauces, ice cream – you name it and I was finding a recipe to make it from scratch. Then came Maddie Grace, and things changed… a lot. Now my days of making from scratch are few and far between. I look for easy, fast, but still delicious recipes instead. One thing I still like to make homemade is sauces. It’s typically pretty quick and easy for me to whip up my own sauce, inexpensive, and delicious. Also I wanted to share about an awesome Farm Rich contest that is going on, the details are below so keep reading!
My biggest cravings lately have been bread and cheese. Keeping in with my cooking patterns lately I’ve been finding ways to satisfy these cravings without spending hours in the kitchen. I’m loving Farm Rich cheese sticks and toasted ravioli. I pop them in the oven, play with Maddie Grace, and pull them out when they are sizzling and perfectly baked. But they need some type of dipping sauce to go with them, which is why I throw together this homemade creamy marinara.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-Half Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
-1 8 oz Jar Tomato Sauce
-1 6 oz Jar Tomato Paste
-Favorite Farm Rich Appetizers (for dipping)
Here’s what you’ll do:
(1) Mix together your tomato sauce and tomato paste with 4 spoonfuls of the pesto sauce in saucepan and heat over medium heat around 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
(2) Pour in half of the heavy whipping cream and stir well. Keep over heat another 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
(3) Top with parsley, serve and enjoy!
This is my favorite dipping sauce and it goes perfectly with Farm Rich cheese sticks or cheese ravioli.

I never would have guessed to put pesto in a marinara sauce. I bet it adds such depth of flavor.
Everyday Grace says
this looks so delicious! I've made my own "pasta sauce" but never actual marinara! and anything you can dip cheese sticks in to, I'm on board with! thanks for sharing! I'm pinning this for later! xx
