YIELDS: 4 Servings

PER SERVING: 1 Lean, 3 Greens, and 3 Condiments per serving

* Here are some options for approved marinara sauces, but of course not limited to just these below. When choosing a sauce, it must have less than 5 g of Carbs per serving or 1/4 cup. The lower the calories, the better. I used Prego No Sugar Added Marinara Sauce for this recipe:

  • Rao’s Marinara Sauce
  • Hunt’s Garlic and Herb Pasta Sauce
  • Trader Joes Traditional Pasta Sauce
  • Organico Bello Marinara Sauce
  • Prego No Sugar Added Marinara Sauce
