You got that right! I hate when I get Maranara made with dried herbs, man that sucks! I was out to lunch the other day and ordered a seafood bowl with Clams, Mussels and Shrimp, the Seafood was cooked perfect but the sauce was made with dried herbs, I ate the seafood and tossed the sauce.
I like the Stanaslatutis canned sauce. I explode the garlic, Basil, little oregano, some red pepper flakes and Some Bay leaves in hot Olive Oil (not necessary to use EVOO) then add some red wine, the tomatoes and simmer for about 45 minuites adjust the S&P at the end. Chill and heat to order a bit of a pain but it keeps a nice color and texture as well as a "fresher" taste than some steam table aged Maranara.
I am assuming Maranara and not tomato sauce or Italian Gravy, etc
