Freezer Spaghetti or Pizza Sauce

I use this recipe for Freezer Spaghetti or Pizza Sauce.  It is great for either!  

It is easy to dump in a pot, enjoy the smell of meat and tomatoes and garlic in the house for a couple of hours and then pour over traditional noodles or a low carb and gluten free option of zoodles or even french cut string beans.

Quinoa as a nutritious, gluten free option.  We have done all of those at our house.

Other low carb options I have tried are Palmini Linguine (found in Walmart in the gluten free section) and Shirataki Spaghetti (found in Walmart in the fresh vegetable section). Both were good. I liked the Palmini better. Both needed a good rinse and good boil to make them softer. The shirataki did tend to be rubbery (in my opinion; many like them). I will buy the Palmini again and keep them on hand. Here the sauce is pictured over Palmini.

 

We also use this as a pizza sauce for Low Carb Crustless PizzaLow Carb Pizza Crust or spaghetti sauce foLow Carb Parmesan MeatballsLow Carb Stuffed Peppers, Beef Pasta Bake Freezer Meal or Crock Pot Italian Pesto Chicken.  

It freezes perfectly and is so nice to pull out for a quick, easy, delicious family meal later.

This recipe makes a lot.  It is hard to judge a serving since it could be used so many different ways.

Diced tomatoes and tomato sauce measurements do not need to be exact, just have about twice as many diced as sauce.  Sometimes I use the big 105 oz can from Sam’s Club for the sauce and sometimes three 28 oz cans; whatever I have on hand.

This is an optional step but if you plan to make this often, it saves time when you make it again. As I measure out the seasonings for my pot, I also add the same to a small container. The next time I already have over half of the ingredients measured and ready to dump in the pot!

Note: I revised this recipe on 5/4/19 and changed the petite diced tomatoes to crushed tomatoes. I have used them the last few times and it makes a thicker sauce that way and less watery; just better.
