Pasta Sauce - THM Style

As I was making pasta free lasagna tonight and getting all of my other ingredients ready, I prepared this and let it simmer on the stove.This is my go to homemade sauce recipe because it is so simple and easy, just my style!

You start with three 8oz cans of tomato sauce, or if you have bigger cans that would be 24oz - (in case you aren't good at math). Put it in sauce pan on low heat.

Then you add 2 leaves of crushed basil (or can use 1tsp), 1 tsp oregano, 1 Tbsp of onion powder and one clove of garlic (or 1tsp powder). I LOVE to use fresh garlic.

I also added one packet of NuStevia Stevia powder.

I just let it all simmer until I was ready to use it. This makes a very basic red sauce to use on pizza, lasagna, spaghetti or whatever. 

Sorry, I did not take a picture of the finished product, I was too busy preparing my lasagna and forgot!

Here is the recipe all in one place for you. It is easier to copy or print that way.

Pasta Sauce – THM style

24 oz of tomato sauce
1 pkt of stevia
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder or one clove, minced or pressed
1 Tbps onion powder

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until ready to use. If you are putting this in lasagna or using for pizza, you don’t even need to cook it before using.

*Watch the carbs in your tomato sauce. This brand had 5 each can which makes the entire batch an E but when using only half or 2/3, it would be FP. Plus you can also look at it as you will only be eating a serving of this sauce at a time, not a whole batch :)
