Biggest Loser's Main Event Marinara Sauce

Olive oil spray
1 cup minced yellow or white onion
2 T freshly minced garlic
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup water
2 T. no-salt-added tomato paste
2 tsp. honey
1 T. dried oregano
2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Salt, to taste

Spray a medium nonstick saucepan witht he olive oil spray and place over medium heat.  Add the onion and garlic and cook until just becoming tender (they should not brown), 4 to 6 minutes.  Reduce the heat to low an with a wooden spoon stir in the tomatoes, water, tomato paste, honey, oregano, basil, and pepper flakes until well combined.  Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for at least 1 hour.  Season with salt, if needed.

I served this over Healthy Heart spaghetti noodles, with green salad and french bread on the side.  While this isn't as good as the Prego I usually buy, it definately was not bad.  The kids loved it just as much and at least it is a little more healthy and fresh.
