    Netgirl's Healthy Cookbook's Note:

    This is the best tasting spaghetti sauce I've come across so far. I adapted it from the Discovery Health network's show "Healthy Decadence". The host is Devin Alexander and this is her grandmother's recipe, although I did not like the ground cloves in it. I also wasn't willing to use 2 bunches of fresh parsley, so I use half fresh and half dried. Serve over whole grain pasta (I recommend brown rice pasta, especially for those not accustomed to whole grain pastas) and with a salad. I usually cook quartered crimini mushrooms in 1 cup of sauce for every 2 people or every other week, add baked chicken or turkey meatballs or Hain's spicy chicken sausage (it's lower in sodium than most and can be found at Whole Foods Market). I also usually have a couple of people over for dinner and freeze the leftover sauce in 1 cup containers, which yields dinner for 4 plus 5 servings for future weeks. It's necessary to serve cooked tomatoes to men at least once per week since the lycopene reduces their chances of getting prostate cancer. According to You: The Owner's Manual, "To absorb the optimum amount [of lycopene] (that is, 400 milligrams per week), you'd have to eat 164 raw tomatoes or 16 cooked ones—but you need only 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce a week."
