Fresh Tomato Sauce

 

 

Sliced Roma Tomatoes (used the mandolin)

 

2 cloves Garlic

 

1 Can of oregano basil garlic diced tomatoes strained (reserve sauce from can)

 

2 tblsp Olive oil

 

2 tblsp Butter unsalted

 

2 Beef or chicken bouillon cubes

 

 

In skillet put in olive oil and butter, once pan has heated add garlic, and Roma tomatoes. Put the diced tomatoes on small bar pan sprinkle with salt and paper and roast. After the diced tomatoes have cooked add them to the pan. Saute everything and serve over bowtie pasta.

2 Tbl oil = 8 points (1 Tbl oil = 4 points)

 

2 Tbl Butter - 6 points (1 tsp butter = 1 point)

 

The rest of your ingredients are 0 points. SO the whole pot of sauce would be 14 points, divided by the number of servings.

Would it be better to use cooking spray instead if butter and oil?

It would be lower in Points if you omit the butter and use 1 tsp. olive oil per serving (that gets you a healthy oil for 1 pt.). Or you can omit the oil too. If the basil garlic diced tomatoes contain sugar, you can subsitute garlic powder, basil, and a can of plain diced tomatoes.

 

You can get tomato sauce down to zero if you make it with just tomatoes, other veggies, and seasonings.
