Missing a good fill your belly Italian meal? Well who said sauce had to be tomato based! I tried these 2 sauces and I love them. Neither sauce contains tomato and if you need the pasta try a vegetable and healthy version using spaghetti squash!
The Beet Lady Marinara sauce is awesome and with beets you can't go wrong! The Beet Lady uses Love, Beets, Carrots, Onions, Garlic, Vegetable Stock, Wine Vinegar, Coconut Oil, Seasoning, Bay Leaves, Sea Salt.
The KC Natural No Tomato Sauce is a of base of carrots, tart cherries, beets, and sea salt combine to re-create the tomato flavor.
Pair either of these sauces with Spaghetti Squash or your favorite pasta substitute and you got an Italian meal that is healthy and delicious!
See my recipe on zucchini casserole if you want to try something different!

Place squash, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking dish. Place into oven and roast until tender, about 35-45 minutes.

Using a fork, scrape the flesh to create long strands.
