Stir-through Pasta sauces are super convenient. Whilst nothing will compare to a homemade sauce, these sauces do make Low carb living a little easier at times.

They are a quick way you can add flavour to your veggies, caul-rice and zoodles. One of the easiest meals to pop together is stirring a few tablespoons of sauce into some veggies, add some cheese and blitz in the microwave.
