I have found the BEST almost as good as homemade pasta sauce..
Sauces and Love Sugo Rosa sauce.. it's a vodka sauce with a hint of cream..
one serving isn't horribly high in calories - 110, but it does have a TON of fat for those watching that... however, there is no added anything (sugar, etc) and the only problem i've had with it is that it's so good i want to eat it out of the jar with a spoon! seriously, i'm very picky about pasta sauces, and this is pricey but worth every penny. it would be great for a "cheat" meal because even though it's so rich and savory you won't feel TOO guilty about eating it.
while i'm talking pasta, WF store brand (365) pasta sauce isn't too bad for a jarred sauce and there isn't anything added like sugars if you're watching that (the sauces and love is a fresh, non shelf stable sauce, you can find it in many natural foods stores in the cooler) OH and black soybean pasta.. i forgot that i LOVE LOVE it as i haven't found it in a store for years but my local natural foods store carries it.. only 22 carbs and 11 are fiber! looks like shoelaces when cooked but DELICIOUS with tomato or cream sauce.
lol, can you all tell i'm hungry?
anyway, i started this post because I wanted to tell you all about a book I read today at work - I got an advance copy of "baking with agave nectar" by Ania Catalano and the recipes look FANTASTIC.. many are LF, all are sugar free, many are vegan and or gluten free and they are marked as such. no nutritional info but it can't be that hard to figure out. lots of recipies that sneak veggies into your favorite sweet treats ..I am going to try out at least one of the recipes on my next day off - i'll let you all know how it turns out.
