While it's easy to simply grab a bottle of tomato sauce to go with your pasta, you're not necessarily doing yourself any nutritional favors. Most of these bottled pasta sauces are not very healthy, with most of the carbohydrates made up of sugar and also high in sodium.
Go from nutritionally bankrupt to nutritionally rich by making your own fresh tomato pasta sauce. It's easier than you think! And when you add in Bone Broth Protein Pure, you're adding in valuable protein and collagen, including glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid and 19 amino acids.
