It’s that time of week again when I share with you one of my favorite foods. This weeks is Main Event Marinara Sauce from the “Biggest Loser Family Cookbook”.
I use this sauce for spaghetti, lasagna, actually most pasta recipes, cabbage rolls, and could even be used on pizza. I love that I know everything that goes in it and that it’s healthy for my family. When I make it I make a quadruple batch (cook it for 3-6 hours) and freeze the other servings for later, that way I’m making one mess for 4 meals.
I recommend the “Biggest loser Family Cookbook” to everyone, it has so many, easy, healthy, yummy meals in it.
