Quick Homemade Marinara Sauce – Keto and Low Carb

IMG_3921

If you like Italian food, but don’t want to overindulge in carbs, try this sauce! Packed with plenty of flavor, this sauce is so versatile, it pairs perfectly with homemade mozzarella sticks (see my recipe here ), pizza bites, keto breadsticks, shirataki noodles or zoodles.  It’s unbelievably quick and simple to make, you can double or triple the batch to make extra for freezing.
