    In my family tradition, we would have called this recipe really a fresh tomato MARINARA. My (Neapolitan) family’s pomerola is a meat sauce (pork and beef) using tomatoes and some tomato paste all of which would take about an hour to be ready for dressing pasta.

    What you call “marinara” is called salsa di pomodoro or pomarola in Italy. Pomarola here is never with meat.

    A sugo di pomarola I was given in Firenze from a little trattoria included carrots and celery. Does this exist anywhere else?
