Doru’s marinara sauce

This sauce was made after a lot of trials and inspired from different marinara sauces found on the internet. I think the results are amazing.


  • 250g bacon
  • 2 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped fine
  • 2 medium size carrots, chopped fine
  • 2 bay leaf
  • 250g mushrooms
  • 10 cloves garlic
  • 1 large can crushed & peeled tomatoes
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 250g bacon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp of molasses
  • 3-4 tbsp Tiranga – hot sauce
  • 250g Barilla spaghetti (half package)
  • Parmigiano cheese


Cut and saute the bacon in a large pan until crispy. Take out and set aside on a plate with paper towel. In the bacon fat left in the pan, saute for approx. 10 min the carrots, celery and onion on medium low heat until soft and season with salt and pepper. Add red wine and allow to simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients except the bacon and simmer on low for 30 minutes. Cook the spaghetti for 8 min in boiling water and put them on two plates. Spread the sauce on top of the spaghetti and sprinkle bacon and shredded cheese.
