Zinfandel Artichoke & Olive Marinara by Gil's Gourmet
Gil's makes this chunky sauce with Italian plum tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts, and a generous portion of olives. A dash of California Zinfandel brings out the wonderful fresh flavors of this California meets Italy sauce. Ideal for pasta dishes or as a pizza base. Great as a dip for calzones and mozzarella sticks. Dress up veal, chicken, pork and seafood.

Marinara sauce (the sauce of sailors) originates from Naples sometime in the 16th century with tomatoes being brought to Europe from the Spanish explorations. The tomato base of this sauce made it acidic enough so that it was less likely to spoil on voyages. Today the name is used in America to refer to a tomato-based sauce generally with Italian herbs and spices, garlic and onions.
