Marinara is highly flavourful all by its lonesome, but if you want to kick it up a notch, why not add some home-made dairy free ‘Parmesan’ to your pasta? You can purchase Parmesan alternatives at most specialty stores, but it’s so easy to make yourself, and much healthier! (or purchase my all natural version at Karmavore!)
