Mediterranean Style Seafood Marinara Sauce
Serves 4
Like Bouillabaisse, the celebrated Provencal Style soup, this sauce is chock full of seafood and has a heady aroma of herbs, spices and, of course saffron! With just a little extra water, clam juice or seafood stock, this delicious sauce is also a phenomenal soup!
