SkinnyTaste is one of my favorite blogs, hands down. She has so many wonderful recipes that are delicious and good for you. I got the idea for this 3 Ingredient Healthy Pasta Sauce from SkinnyTaste's Easy Garden Tomato Sauce. I made her recipe even healthier by eliminating the olive oil and using low sodium vegetable broth to saute and steam the tomatoes. The outcome of my sauce was even better than I expected. After letting the tomatoes simmer for 30 minutes, the juice from the tomatoes is reduced and the tomato flavor is intensified. The result is a rich, flavorful, fresh tomato sauce that is way better tasting than anything you'll find in a jar, and better for you too. I can't wait to try this sauce with my Healthy Eggplant Rollatini and other Italian recipes.
3 Ingredient Healthy Pasta Sauce
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp Italian seasoning
optional: 3-4 Tbsp low sodium vegetable broth
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Add tomatoes, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste, and 3-4 tablespoons of water or vegetable broth. Cover and allow mixture to simmer for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pasta sauce is ready when tomatoes have become very soft. Toss with cooked pasta and serve immediately.

-Really easy to make
-Ready in 30 minutes
-A healthy, low sodium alternative to store bought pasta sauce
-Versatile (serve over whole wheat pasta and whatever other ingredients you normally add to your pasta, such as grilled chicken, ground beef or turkey, sauteed vegetables, fresh mozzarella cheese, and/or Parmesan cheese)
-More like a topping rather than a sauce (I think this is a pro, but I realize that some people prefer a thinner sauce)
