Super Healthy Tomato Pasta Sauce

If you like a thinner sauce, add stock or water until you reach the desired consistency. This sauce is great used in any recipes that call for tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce. I've used it on pizzas, chicken parmigiana, and spaghetti and meatballs. You can freeze this sauce.
