Hi, where would one purchase the 'sugar free' spaghettis auce ? If you know of the place, what is the name BRAND ? Or, do you think we could make our own ??

Most of the 8 ounce kind that I've seen have no sugar. Some that I have heard of are:

- Kroger's brand
- The Hunts tomato sauce in my store
- pureed tomatoes will work in a pinch
- Ragu also has a "No Sugar" added variety
- Classico (from Costco) and Trader Joe's


**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
