My Moms recipe called for a can of tomato paste and tomato sauce, that is simmered on the stove with olive oil, and fresh garlic, salt and pepper etc... I don't always have time for that, so my recipe calls for a jar of my favorite marinara. Also, she usually sauteed the whole meal on the stove, I am opting to bake it all in a baking dish.
