Marinara sauce is an Italian recipe made with tomatoes, garlic, herbs and onions. Like many traditional Italian dishes there are many variations, but our version is packed full of speed foods. Which can only be good for helping with your weight loss, right?
If you work on 6 meatballs per person then this will work out at 1 syn per portion, and you’ll get 3 portions from this recipe.
We used shop bought low fat meatballs for this Low Syn Meatball Marinara recipe, which worked out at 0.5 syns for 3 meatballs.
We like to use Cirio Chopped Tomatoes and Tomato Puree, because we don’t find them anywhere near as watery as some other brands. And if you are going to make a traditional Italian dish you really do need traditional Italian tomatoes.
You can serve these with pretty much whatever takes your fancy. Spaghetti, pasta, rice, Slimming World chips, anything!
