Pasta is by and far my favorite comfort food, but it is (usually) a guilty pleasure. Many pasta sauces are loaded with way too many carbs, calories, unnecessary sugar and preservatives. Pasta sauce is one of those things that is so easy to make, but many of us tend to pick up a jar of the pre-made stuff out of convenience. This Easy & Healthy Tomato sauce will change all of that! This sauce takes only a few minutes of active cooking time, and just 30 minutes to allow all of the flavors to simmer together. After that, you have a delicious homemade tomato sauce that is considerably better for you and better tasting than anything you will find in the grocery store. With only 92 calories and 9 net carbs per serving, this is a sauce that you don’t have to feel bad about!
If meaty, cheesy and saucy are three adjectives that get you a little excited – you have come to the right place! These Jumbo Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs are just what the name implies. They are flavorful ground beef meatballs stuffed with fresh mozzarella and baked in a bed of freshly made marinara sauce. All of this may sound like it takes an extreme amount of work to put together, but the meatballs and sauce come together in 10 minutes or less. After that, you just stick them in the oven, wait patiently and enjoy! If you are REALLY hungry, serve these up with some warm pasta, but I like them with a simple side salad or some fresh veggies.
