Happy St. Paddy’s day! How nice that it falls smack dab in the middle of Nutrition Month. Find your pot of gold of nutrient richness at the end of your rainbow as you simply cook and enjoy!

Here’s another idea: Get saucy! Make your own spaghetti sauce with just a few ingredients.

Ready-made spaghetti sauce can be costly and high in fat, sugar or salt. You can easily make your own sauce with just a few ingredients and these simple steps:

  • Lightly sauté onions and garlic in a little olive oil
  • Add low-sodium canned tomatoes and simmer
  • Season with freshly ground pepper and herbs such as basil or oregano

Try adding mushrooms, zucchini and chopped spinach. It’s a tasty, low-cost way to enjoy a variety of veggies in one simple meal!
