Belongs to kylerhea Marinara Sauce 

Every cook needs a good recipe for marinara sauce. This one can be prepared in less than an hour and used in many ways. It is traditionally served over pasta, but is equally delicious with polenta or rice. It also makes a wonderful sauce for grilled vegetables or baked tempeh or tofu. Tomatoes cooked with oil provide a source of lycopene, one of the carotenes linked to protection from prostate cancer.

Parsley and walnuts add extra health benefits to this version of aglio e olio, the Italian classic of spaghetti with garlic and oil. I like using whole-grain pasta made from farro, an ancient form of Italian wheat that tastes mild and nutty. Specialty stores and natural foods markets have this pasta di farro, made by Manicaretti or Latini, while supermarkets, usually sell whole-wheat spaghetti. (Those from DeCecco and Delverde are especially good.)
Fast Fact: Walnuts are the only nut containing ellagic acid, an important antioxidant.
Quick Tip: Roasting the nuts at 350ยบ F. for 5 minutes improves their flavor.

Saw this episode on the WGBH station when we were in Mystic, CT for the Rosh Hashanah holiday 2006.

The variations that each cook brings to his or her favorite tomato sauce recipe are innumerable; everyone seems to have some trick that makes all the difference between a successful sauce and one that doesn’t measure up, whether it’s a certain herb, a splash of wine, or, as in this recipe, three different types of tomatoes for a rustic, complex flavor.
