One of the problems with using a prepared spaghetti sauce is that they contain added sugar and are high in sodium. Here’s a pasta sauce that has great flavor and you can use on anything that needs sauce, such as your favorite pasta, fish, or chicken.

The Monte Bene® Farm Fresh Tomato Basil, Garlic Marinara, and Spicy Marinara Pasta Sauces are delicious as well as truly “all natural” — just tomatoes, Italian San Marzano tomatoes, fresh onions (not dehydrated), extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil and garlic, and seasonings.

Each sauce contains just 240 mg sodium per 1/2 cup serving, no added sugar, and 40 calories. Other commercial sauces can contain up to three times the sodium plus added sugar (up to 10 times the sugar).
