When most people think of marinara sauce, the first thing that pops into their mind is spaghetti. Unless you’re my daughter, in which you immediately think of mozzarella sticks.

Then again, I think of garlic bread. Marinara sauce makes an excellent dipping sauce.

Often store bought marinara sauce is sweetened with sugar, which bump up the carbs. It’s one of those hidden carb products you need to watch out for since tomatoes already have their own store of natural sugars.

In order to drop the added sugars from the store bought marinara sauces I decided to create my own. It’s a quick and easy sauce with the perfect amount of sweetness derived from the tomatoes own sugars. Best of all, it’s lower in carbs than store bought sauces.
