Today I’m going to show you how to make a quick low carb spaghetti sauce, but first, I want to share some potentially troubling news out of Sweden.
I’m afraid that ABBA has gotten back together. (video below)
The infamous disco group has reunited to write new music and go on tour. The members of the group are in their 70’s now, so they have opted to perform as their “digital selves”. They created computer generated avatars of themselves that look like they did at the height of their fame. (They call them “ABBAtars”.) According to singer Bjorn Ulvaeus, “We thought we looked good that year.”
So the world might be done with ABBA, but ABBA isn’t done with us yet.
Anyway, let’s return to that spaghetti sauce I mentioned earlier.
This quick low carb tomato sauce is super easy to make and only has 3g net carbs per serving. Traditional spaghetti sauces are simmered for several hours, but you really only need ten minutes to make a very passable sauce. You just soften some onions and garlic in a sauce pan, then add crushed tomatoes and seasonings and simmer for ten minutes. Ten minutes works out to about three new ABBA songs.
Mamma mia, here I go again!

I’ve included links in this post for the specialty products that I used. The best prices I’ve found are from Thrive Market which is like the Costco of health food. After you pay a $60 membership fee, you’ll be able to order low carb products at a discount of 25-50%. So the links in the recipe ingredients are links to the less expensive Thrive Market products. But I’ve also included Amazon links below to use if you don’t have a Thrive Market membership. Both kinds of links are affiliate links, so I’ll receive a commission if you buy something. Which is, honestly, a pretty sweet deal.
