Vegetarian, fat free, flavorful marinara sauce. I love this recipe, because it is vegetarian, but still has a lot of flavor. It is best eaten the next day. I use this to make a healthy eggplant parmesan. Instead of breading and frying the eggplant, I slice it, place it on a baking sheet sprayed with pam, salt, pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil, and roast for about 10-15 mins in a 400 degree oven. Layer in pan sprayed with pam, alternating with sauce. Top with a small amount of fresh mozzarella and bake until cheese melts. Very flavorful, and low in fat and calories.
