Healthy Tomato Vodka Sauce

Healthy Tomato Vodka Sauce

This month, we are all about keeping things simple. With back-to-school season in full swing, weeknight meals need to be on the table in 30 minutes and the cleanup should be minimal. That’s why we love this recipe for Healthy Tomato Vodka Sauce.

Typically, vodka sauce is made with heavy cream which adds a lot of saturated fat. By swapping out the cream with some plain Greek yogurt and reduced-fat milk, the creamy texture remains without the unhealthiness. Best of all, this recipe calls for lots and lots of tomatoes, which are a September Foods of the Month! Bulk it up with more veggies by adding sautéed onions, peas or your favorite veggie. We keep it simple with the recipe below, but the possibilities are endless.
