10 Delicious Family Meals with Tomato Sauce via

If there is one thing that always goes over with my family and most children I know, it is tomato sauce. My daughter adores spaghetti and meatballs, of course, but if I say we are going to have tomato sauce with chicken, or tomato sauce over polenta she is totally fine with it because there is tomato sauce involved! I usually rely on my simple tomato sauce recipe when I need tomato sauce for something like eggplant Parmesan or lasagna. It is so easy and healthy to make and we all adore it. However, I am not opposed to picking up the occasional jar of organic tomato sauce from Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s in a pinch. I find their store brands to be very affordable and comprised of only basic ingredients with a very low sugar content. Here are some of our favorite tomato sauce dinners that always hit the spot!
