with lots of hidden vegetables if your kids are fussy. Tinned tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, thyme, grated carrot, and seasoning. Mix it straight in the saucepan. Endless varities on vegetables and spices, add what you like. Last time I had cinnamon in, was yum. This also works as a sauce for meats.

Walden Farms has come out with new Low Carb Pasta Sauces which can help you stay on your low carb lifestyle. The Pasta Sauces are calorie free, fat free, carb free, and gluten free...dont know how they do it but thats what the label says. Anyway pair it up with 2 ounces of low carb pasta like Dreamfields....add some green beans or brpoccoli to blunt the sugar.
This is a cheap and low calorie meal just add a sachet of supermarket own brand cuppa soup to boiling water and add the pasta it turns into a sauce! Cheap low calorie alternative to rich pasta sauces...yum!
Cut Your Pasta servings in HALF with NO ONE missing the extra calories!
Make your sauce CHUNKY with LOTS of veggies( tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, spinach, squash etc) It should be like a stew..Don't let it get "runny" . Boil 1oz whole grain pasta per person and when done- use kitchen shears to snip into small pieces. Mix into sauce and divide into servings. The veggies make up for the lower amount of pasta. And because it isn't a mound under the sauce- no one can gage how much( or little) pasta they actually have.!
Using the whole grain pasta will add fiber so that you feel fuller than you would from reg pasta as well. My Italian hubby hasn't noticed that he is only eating 1oz of pasta per meal in a YEAR! ( he used to have 6-8oz by himself!)
