Rao’s Pasta and Pizza Sauce (and Low-Carb Recipes Using Rao’s)
When you want the ease of using a purchased sauce, Rao’s Pasta and Pizza Sauce are the lowest carb purchased sauces I’ve found! This post spotlights tasty low-carb meals using Rao’s Sauce; I hope one of them ends up on your list for Weekend Food Prep this week!
Some of you would never use a purchased sauce, I realize that. But with everyone cooking at home so much more these days I’ve been looking for easier things to cook, and I’m guessing a lot of other people are too. And Rao’s Pasta and Pizza Sauce variations are all low in carbs and I’ve really loved experimenting with Rao’s sauce to make some recipes a bit easier to get on the table.
Of course if you enjoy making your own pasta sauce or pizza sauce, you can definitely use homemade sauce in any of these low-carb and Keto recipes that I’ve made using Rao’s! And most of the dishes here are great options for Weekend Food Prep, where you cook on the weekend and have some leftovers to eat during the busy week. Hope you enjoy trying some!
Where can you find Rao’s Pizza and Pasta Sauce?
I can’t find all of the Rao’s sauce varieties in every store in my town. I can only find the pizza sauce at Target and the Alfredo Sauce at Fresh Market. But my Costco does carry big jars of the pasta sauce in a two-pack that’s a good buy. You can always find a wide variety of Rao’s Pizza and Pasta Sauce at Amazon.com (affiliate link) if you shop there.
Beef and Sausage Meatballs with Tomato Sauce is an old favorite recipe I updated using Flaxseed Meal (affiliate link) and Rao’s Pasta Sauce (affiliate link) to make a new low-carb version! (11 carbs, 4 grams fiber)
When I decided to experiment with Air Fryer Pizza, I used Rao’s Pizza Sauce (affiliate link) that only has 2 carbs in 1/4 cup sauce. (As shown pizza serving is 9.7 net carbs for the low-carb tortilla crust, 14.9 net carbs for the flatbread crust, and 15.4 net carbs for the low-carb pita bread crust. If you make a pizza with just sauce, cheese, and pepperoni, that will be 4.7 fewer carbs for each crust option.)
No-Noodle Lasagna with Sausage and Basil is a mega-popular low-carb lasagna recipe that uses Rao’s for the sauce and Folios Parmesan Cheese Wraps for the “noodles” to make a delicious lasagna casserole that’s a hit with everyone! (8.3 carbs, 1 gram fiber)
Chicken Alfredo Mock Lasagna Casserole is another casserole similar to lasagna that uses Folios Parmesan Cheese Wraps for the “noodles” and this uses Rao’s Alfredo Sauce (affiliate link) which is amazingly flavorful for a sauce from a jar! (8 carbs, 1.5 grams fiber)
Sausage and Pepperoni Layered Pizza Bake is another tasty idea that uses Rao’s Pizza Sauce. This recipe has a low-carb version that uses Mission Carb Balance Low-Carb Tortillas (affiliate link) or a Keto version that uses Folios Parmesan Cheese Wraps, so take your choice! (Keto version has 2.8 carbs and .1 gram fiber; low-carb version has 18.2 carbs, 13.1 grams fiber)
And this Alice Springs Chicken Casserole is another delicious low-carb casserole that uses Rao’s Alfredo Sauce! (8 carbs, 1 gram fiber)
