If you have followed this blog for a while you may well have picked up on the fact that I love a good pizza sauce! Perhaps it’s because it tastes so good without being unhealthy, or it has that echo of eating something really indulgent (a big old pizza) and chases away cravings for junk food.

This is the sort of meal that I would always go for if I was at an American-Italian restaurant, it’s such a satisfying meal to eat. This is the super-quick version- most of the time I would add in chopped onion and fresh garlic, but this is the weeknight in-a-hurry version, but it’s still full of goodness and super lean.

It’s up to you what you prefer to serve it with- regular spaghetti is obviously great, wholewheat spaghetti adds a nice extra bit of fibre, and butternut squash noodles would also be a really tasty option. Or even just a green salad!
