    How about a recipe for low carb marinara sauce? We don’t get that processed/packaged stuff in th UK (at least it’s not called that) and I’d rather cook from scratch with real food. Thanks.

    If you use:

    A can or two of crushed tomatoes
    a stick of butter
    1 onion cut it half
    Italian seasoning
    Couple gloves of whole garlic

    Combine in a sauce pan and simmer on low for a hour.
    This makes a very delicious sauce.
