Pretty Amazing Pink Pasta Sauce: Low Carb, Trim Healthy Mama S

This pink sauce is pretty amazing and low carb/trim healthy mama s.

I don’t go to Italian restaurants very often anymore. Pre-thm I would go just about once a month. A local Italian restaurant had a delicious pink pasta sauce. They served it with ham and black olives in the sauce. I used Canadian Bacon! This sauce is amazing and absolutely takes the place of the restaurant pink sauce.

Let’s talk pasta.

Use whatever pasta your family will eat. My family really doesn’t care for spaghetti squash or veggie noodles or zoodles. One of my sons said that he can tell when I used Dreamfields pasta. They are mostly okay with the pasta made with lentils or the other pastas like those. Typically, I make one sauce and cook two different noodles. That’s what works for my family.

This is another super easy and fast skillet dinner.

Skillet meals are great for busy nights and hot days. These meals are perfect year-round. Busy lives, skillet dinners. 100 degrees outside, skillet dinner. Don’t feel like spending forever in the kitchen, skillet dinners. I am sure you get the point. We served this with a side salad, and we didn’t miss the bread! If you make this, let me know what you thought.
