Quick Easy Low Sodium Tomato Sauce

Here is a basic, tomato sauce for pasta and pizza. It will make about 3 2-person servings, which can be frozen in separate containers. Sodium per serving in this one, very low.
  • 1 28-oz can diced or crushed tomatoes, no salt added
  • 1/4 c finely diced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2-4 T olive oil
  • fresh pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients except pepper in wide skillet. Simmer for 20-30 min, stirring occasionally. Season with pepper to taste. And . . . if you are yearning for a more spicy version, add another clove or two of garlic, or up the heat with a bit of chili oil, your favorite hot sauce, or a sprinkling of ground red chili.

Total sodium 270 mg. Six servings. 45 mg of sodium per serving

Thanks to Maria Duncan for this one.
