Easy New Year’s Resolutions: Trade Out Store-Bought Pasta Sauce!

healthy recipesYou don’t have to be Italian to know that pasta and tomatoes just go together — and tomatoes are vitamin C superstars. But commercial tomato-based pasta sauces amp up the sodium (more than 1,000 mg per cup, which is almost half the recommended daily allowance), and many contain high-fructose corn syrup, which adds about 23 grams of sugars.

 

Canned tomatoes, on the other hand, have half the sodium and sugars, and they’re fat-free! Sauté the tomatoes in a little olive oil and toss with pasta and fresh herbs (or click here for our Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce recipe). An added benefit: cooked tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant known to fight cancer.
