Recipe: Marinara Sauce

P2Marinara Sauce on P2 is so incredibly versatile.  It is a staple when I am doing a round.  I especially like it when I make Zoodle Chicken (P2 legal and recipe coming soon).

First, what is a zoodle?  It’s a cute little name someone came up with who knows how long ago that describes making noodles out of zucchini.  Yeah, whoda thunk you could make noodles out of zucchini???

When you are on the Phase 2 portion of The hCG Protocol, you have to get creative.  And this is creative at it’s best!

I have a kitchen tool that is just perfect for this job.  It’s not cheap, but I gotta tell you, when you have the right tool for the job, it makes life a whole lot easier.  This thing is called a Benriner Cook Helper, and it makes perfect spirals of all sorts of veggies, not just zucchini.  Well worth the price in my opinion, then again, someone gave this to me as a present!  Thanks LINDA!

Zoodle Chicken is a complete P2 meal, and some might balk at the fact that it has zucchini in it, which is not on the approved Dr. Simeons list.  It is definitely one of those things where your mileage may vary, but over the years it has proven to be an additional veggie that works well on P2.

I have strayed.  Which I do a lot.  In any case, use this Marinara Sauce for all sorts of P2 Recipes.  It’s yummy!  I want to whet your appetite for the upcoming recipe Zoodle Chicken using this Marinara Sauce recipe.
