Check out walden farms sugar free marinara sauce (Tomato & Basil) Walden Farms calorie free alfredo sauce & calorie free scampi sauce. Walden Farms Pasta Sauces are said to be calorie free, fat free, carb free, and gluten free...don't know how they do it....pair it with low carb pasta like Dreamfields patsa.

My favorite is a store brand---Meijer Chunky Marinara. It has no added sugar. It HAS to be the Chunky Marinara though since there other varieties do contain sugar!

I like the hunts spaghetti sauce (traditional) in the can and Classico. I find most jarred sauces to be way too sweet.

No Sugar Added Ragu - I like it because it has NO HIGH-FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP and because I can add any seasonings and spices I want to it.

I am trying to keep low-sodium V8 to use as a base for pasta sauce. I may add a can of diced tomatoes or a bunch of veggies like spinach, zucchini, mushrooms... whatever I have on hand. Sometimes I may brown some ground turkey. Add the spices that you like. I prefer this because the sodium content is so much lower and that is a concern of mine,

I'd reccommend Trader Joe's tomato basil sauce. I also like some of the chunkyier ones (but I can't think of any brands off the top of my head).

Thanks everyone! Can't wait to go shopping and make some new pasta dishes. I am trying whole wheat for the first time and am looking forward to adding some sauce and veggies to it :)

the ragu light alfredo. it has 60 calories and 4 grams of fat for 1/4 of a cup. sometimes i thin it out even more with a little bit of chicken broth.

i sometimes use the light alfredo with chicken breasts, spinach, artichoke hearts, basil and maybe pasta. I also use it as a sauce for broccoli.

maybe not the healthiest option but i like it once in a while for a change.

I love the Trader Joe's tomato pasta sauces. I have not done a comparison to see which one is the healthiest option though.

I think Classico is a good brand. I do like to add sauted garlic and onions, maybe mushroom or green pepper to sauce for flavor and nutrition, but the brand is good. Cindy

I like Classico tomato and basil. I sometimes will add green peppers and onions to it and pour it over chicken. Or sometimes add garlic and onions and have it with chicken sausges.
I use it as pizza sauce too !!

Basic sauce that you can change up !!

Usually make my own, but Mario Batalli (hope I spelled his name right), has no added sugar or soybean oil. Very yummy and worth the expense.

Sounds like an east question, but I wanted to know what everyone's favorite basic pasta sauces were. Not something that you make, but something I can keep in my pantry and add other veggies to. What's your fave?
