Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I added fresh mushrooms to the sauce, left out the sugar completely (although shredded carrots sounds like a great idea!) I'm serving this with homemade low-sodium turkey meatballs on a bed of spaghetti squash. A sprinkling of parmesan makes it feel like a real pasta dish. Submitted by:

Be careful when reading the directions. The list of ingredients says "1 tablespoon olive oil" yet the directions say "Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil." I'm pretty sure it's supposed to say "Heat 2 TEASPOONS of oil." If you're not careful, you'll be adding lots more calories and fat than calculated. Submitted by:

More veggies (carrots, celery, peppers) make it even more flavorful. Dicing/slicing veggies as small as possible before simmering also assures more flavor.

Also, beware that quite often, NO SALT canned tomatoes has added sugar.

Canned tomatoes can also be seasoned and used in place of salsa

Grated carrot, chopped spinach, mushrooms, like many other people have mentioned are wonderful additions and I personally love them, but some people are tomato purists and the grated zucchini is practically undetectable especially by kids..lol. I take off one star for the addition of sugar ...sorry. Submitted by:

With a name like "veggie-packed", I expected more. Like other reviewers, I would add carrots (rather than sugar), mushrooms, & leafy greens. As far as the canned tomatoes, I think they're great - as long as you find a good, low-sodium, brand. There are quite a few good ones out there! Submitted by:

I use virtually the same recipe and add loads of mushrooms. Split a brown pitta bread in half, top with the sauce and a little grated parmesan and hey presto, you have a pizza with loads less calories - just when you feel like cheating..!! :) Submitted by:

It does say right in the ingredient list NO SALT tomatoes. I would also make sure they are organic with a label that states the can has BPA free lining. Great over spaghetti squash! Submitted by:

I agree with many... you can most certainly add more veggies (like carrots, red bell peppers, swiss chard)... and then blend the sauce after cooking. This disguises the veggies even better if that is a concern. Canned tomatoes are all we have sometimes. I try to find no salt added. Stock up if foun Submitted by:

I do not add the sugar. We do not like a sweet tomato sauce... it actually takes away from the fresh tomato flavor we all love. The onions add enough sweetness to this sauce. There are times I omit the onions too.... makes for a different flavor for a change too. Submitted by:

Disappointing when I saw 'packed with veggies' I was expecting more than an onion and zucchini. You can buy organic unsalted tomatoes and I would add pepper, carrot, mushroom, spinach, even squash to up the veggie content Submitted by:

I've done something similar with finely chopped other veg, but I really like the idea of grating. Or chop fairly finely and blend. I like the idea of carrot rather than sugar - perhaps either squash, turnip or parsnip as well/instead? I need to get some made and frozen! Very soon! Submitted by:

I haven't tried this yet but if you do watch your sodium intake you can always use tomatoes with no salt added. This reduces the sodium probably by about 300mg if not more. Submitted by:

I would suggest grating in some carrot as a natural sweetener to offset the bitterness of the tomatoes rather than sugar. Just a thought! Submitted by:

Personally, I find that using canned tomatoes adds a lot of salt and preservatives that we do not need. Use some fresh Roma tomatoes in place of the canned for a more healthy alternative. About 5 Roma's per can. Delicious and better for you! Submitted by:
