Here is an authentic way to make tomato sauce for your pasta, lasagna and whatever else you wanna use tomato sauce in. Tomato sauce not only adds great flavour to your dishes but it is also a very healthy sauce.
Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A, C and K. One cup of tomato sauce will provide you a quarter of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A and half your daily requirement of vitamin C. Your body needs vitamin A to maintain low-light vision and for building connective tissues under the skin. Vitamin C fills multiple roles within your body, including keeping your teeth and gums healthy, speeding wound healing, metabolizing fats, and absorbing other vitamins and minerals. Vitamin K affects blood clotting. The potassium and manganese in tomatoes help your body build stronger bones and stave off the muscle cramps you could get from low levels of these minerals.
Tomatoes are also naturally rich in the antioxidant lycopene and it also provides fiber. Lycopene, vitamin A and vitamin C all serve as antioxidants that protect your body’s tissues from damage.
