Basic Spaghetti Sauce

This is an easy to prepare basic spaghetti sauce. It is easy to add veggies or meats as you desire. And it's much healthier than the store-bought jars! Be sure to look for cans of whole tomatoes and tomato paste with no added salt.

(Comparison - Most store-bought sauces have 80+ calories and 400+ mg sodium in a 1/2 cup serving. This sauce has 75 calories and 300 mg of sodium in 1 cup serving!)

Amber's Garbanzo Chickpea Extravaganza

I actually got the basics of this recipe when I went to a tops meeting with my mother in law! Get em crispy enough and they are soo tasty! Like eating chips or popcorn but without most of the guilt because they are so jam packed with protein and only have under 200 calories a serving. It feeds four as an appetizer but I'm not gonna lie, I've sat down and had em for lunch and ate an entire batch! They even have a good amont of fiber so enjoy!Submitted by MSKNEENIE
