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!)

Skinny Farmer's Pot Pie
Very Good 4.6/5
(17 ratings)

I call it Farmer's Pot Pie because you should use whatever beans and vegetables you have available according to what is in season and available to you. Skinny because the crust is only on top.
