What, no basil? Like AT ALL? That's a dealbreaker for me.
I like savory marinara too, sometimes, but as I said my particular recipe was an effort to duplicate a restaurant (Monjuni's, now defunct) marinara that was sweet enough to produce cavities.
Oh, and I love you too. Asshole. (Hee! Kidding! Don't sick your cyber harem on my ass!)

Basil makes it Something That's Not Marinara. Personally, I don't mix basil & oregano in pasta sauces.
I also like a fairly short-cooked, very chunky sauce that is basically this sauce plus fresh basil minus dry oregano and with the garlic ooked at a far lower temperature. Something something al basilico IIRC.
Mind you, I don't like sweet in anything outside of dessert, so that's my quirk. No sweet & sour chicken, etc.
P.S. I even make chocolate chip cookies with bittersweet chips.
