Alternately, what is your favorite recipe? I am not a huge sauce fan but my hubby is and he is not doing Whole 30 with me so I'm trying to make as many 'hubby-friendly' items as I can. I know he likes zucchini noodles so I was hoping to make a meat sauce over the noodles. Any other suggestions for a newbie trying to sway their partner?!

I couldn't find any sauce before though, so I made my own that turned out pretty good and is easy. It is not a super thick sauce though. Add your favorite protein:
EVOO to taste (I use a lot)
1/2 chopped white onion
3+ cloves garlic
1 28 oz can of Muir Glen fire roasted crushed tomatoes
1/2 small can of Muir Glen tomato paste
1 tbsp dried basil
1/2 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
- Saute onions in EVOO 4-5 min, add garlic and saute for about 1 min until fragrant, then add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for at least 20 min. Serve over roasted spaghetti squash (my fave) or zucchini.
I make regular noodles for my husband. He has been great about all of my food experiments.

Check out my recipe blog below. Many are Whole30 compliant or easily adapted. All are delicious.

Meg, I'll try that. I usually don't have too much time and am starving after a long day and just want to eat!
You could try it in the crockpot! Although you would have to take the lid off for some time towards the end for it to thicken.

I have yet to find a jar sauce that is Paleo or Whole 30 compliant. I made my own from scratch.
Trader Joe's makes a canned sauce that is actually quite good. You can always add some extra herbs if you would like.Here is the info from the label...
Trader Joe's Marinara Sauce (28 oz can, green label, says low fat)
Ingredients: Whole, Unpeeled Tomatoes, Extra Heavy Tomato Puree, Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Onions, Herbs, Garlic, Salt.
And it's under $2 per can! Can't remember for sure but either $1.79 or $1.99 at my store.

The BEST jarred sauce I've found...and believe me I'm italian and always make my own so I'm extremely picky....is Raos. It's expensive but worth it. http://www.raos.com/...ium-sauces.aspx
I agree...in a pinch when I don't want to cook, Raos is THE best. I love love it. It's easy and fun to make your own, in fact, I make it now using the ingredients from the Raos ingredients list and it turns out really good. You just have to add a LOT of good olive oil after you have cooked the tomatoes, garlic and basil. Then I use my immersion stick blender to get the right consistancy. Raos is still better. I keep a jar in my cupboard for those tired days.
