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!)
