Your Italian grandmother probably doesn’t use bacon in her marinara, but I am not Italian and I am not your grandmother. Bacon adds a smoky, salty flavor to this classic red sauce that pairs perfectly with my bacon meatballs, as a base for fried calamari, ladled over pasta, or anything that you would normally eat with tomato sauce.
