Heart Friendly Spaghetti Sauce

Recipe by Annacia

I found this on a diabetic website awhile back. As my DH refuses to touch that looks like it might be healthy I froze the remaining sauce in 5 small zip bags. It freezes very well and is handy to have in serving sizes. I just defrost them in the micro. It's tasty as well as handy which is always a good thing.

I can't believe how healthy this recipe is! Pretty much no fat and lots of flavour. I made this exactly as listed but I would let it simmer a bit more next time, to thicken it up. My son and I enjoyed our sauce on spaghetti - what better place for spaghetti sauce? Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Annacia! :)
