When cooking, I have a philosophy that homemade is always best. This marinara sauce is no exception! Packed with onion, garlic, and spices, it is so flavorful and you can use it in any recipe that calls for a jar of this classic sauce, such as my Goat Cheese Chicken Parmesan. While tasting it, please make sure you're wearing socks so that you can honestly say it knocked your socks off... Let's proceed.
The original plan was to make some vegetarian Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna Rolls that I found on Skinny Taste. The problem was that when I went to the supermarket the only butternut squash they had weighed 5 FREAKIN' POUNDS! I had never seen such a squash! I used that as an excuse to buy sweet potato instead and add sausage, thus shooting the "vegetarian" tag out into space. If you love sweet potato this dish is for you! The creamy sauce is packed with sweet potato flavor and a nice salty hint from the parmesan cheese. The tiny spinach leaves add pops of vibrant green color in the velvety ricotta mixture. It totally falls under the category of comfort food, but it is pretty enough to make for guests. And now for the fun part!
