I searched and searched my supermarket yesterday and I found one that I thought was acceptable. I can't remember the brand but it was not a wide known brand but it had simple ingredients (tomato sauce, olive oil, garlic, etc). You can easily make your own. I also think the ones from Trader Joes have no sugar added...

Hunt's has a "no sugar added" in a can, pretty tasty!..

Comment #2

I just bought Walden Farms sugar free/calorie free/carb free haven't tried it yet I am soooo hoping that it isn't taste free too!..

Comment #3

If you're craving Alfredo sauce, I use the Ragu Light alfredo. A half cup has only 70 calories and 3 carbs. I use about once a week with shrimp and broccoli and it curbs my cheese craving...

Thanks girlnate, I'll look for that in the grocery store.

Fluffymom: Let me know about the WF stuff, I have tried a few WF things and was not impressed so I am hesitant to spend the $$ on more of it...

I have "doctored up" the tomato soup with garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, oregano, basil and it tastes like tomato sauce to me. I was thinking about putting it on some spaghetti squash. What is this "fettuchini" that you are talking about? I am leery of making anything so good that I can't say no to too much. I am going to Olive Garden for dinner tonight, that should be interesting ...

Deezzy I go to Olive Garden all the time. I get their mixed grill chicken and beef kabobs with peppers & onions and yellow and green squash. I can't remember if it is supposed to come with rice if so, just tell them to leave it off. I also tell them to leave off the glaze they usually put on the meat, since I suspect there is a lot of sugar in that. It is a perfect Medifast meal!!..

Red, that's what I usually order. It has always been a favorite. I am worried about the green as I have been having trouble digesting salads. I had my gall bladder out years ago and I swear I had an attack on Monday night. Saw the Dr. on Tuesday said if happens again will order some tests.

I think they do squash so no biggie it is the company and the sparkling water and their bread isn't so great so I am okay with not having that...

I make the spaghetti "sauce" with some spices, 2 T. salsa, 1 beef bouillion and ground meat. Then I put it over spaghetti squash. It is close enough when you're desperate for some pasta-type dish. I know you could mix it all up w/a Medifast Chili too and it would probably be even better, but I haven't been ready to give up another meal to try it yet...

I use the Ragu Alfredo sauce and add an equal amount of Z-trim, which then gives you more volume of sauce for the same amount of calories and carbs! Still tastes great too. The Ragu Light Parmesan is great too and I add Z-trim to that as well. I use 1 Tablespoon of the Ragu sauce and 1 Tablespoon of Z-trim, mix it up well and it's YUMMY! I also use it to stretch out the volume of some salad dressings.

Z-trim is a zero calorie fat replacement. Visit the link below. (I don't work for the company, nor own stock.).


GREAT PRODUCT and it's approved by Medifast to use as a condiment. This is what Medifast Support said about it.

Since Medifast also fortifies with fiber, just to be aware if you develop diarrhea when using, please discontinue use of Z-Trim. It has the potential to cause that effect..


Ive never had tummy or GI trouble using it and I use it almost daily in some way. I get the gel form as the powder does not mix up all that well...

You can make your own sauce with diced Roma tomatoes, green peppers, onions, garlic, salt & Pepper. Just sautee onions, garlic, peppers in olive oil, then add tomatoes, salt & pepper at the end and finish sauteeing for about 10 minutes...for your spaghetti, either use spaghetti squash (a little sweeter than pasta) or sharitaki noodles found in refrig section of store near tofu (which is just like pasta) & follow directions on bag. Happy eating...

This is a bit late, but...make your own!!! It's easy and always comes out the way you want..

1 can diced tomatoes with nothing added (or dice up fresh tomatoes to have it more fresh!).

Minced garlic clove...or garlic powder to taste.

1 tblspn finely diced onions and/or onion powder...since Medifast frowns on real onions..

Cilantro, basil, oregano, bay leaf or whatever seasonings you like.

Toss it all in a pot and simmer it until it reduces to a consistency you like. If you want, you could use a blender (or one of those wand blenders, which is one of the kitchen toys I have) if you like a finer texture for the tomatoes. Simmer it on a medium-low heat, uncovered so that little bubbles come up but it doesn't boil..

Personally, I like to do this because I see A LOT of other pasta sauces that sneak in other ingredients like sugar and whatnot. This way, I know what I'm getting. Additionally, I get to tweak the flavor to whatever my mood is rather than staring at a cupboard filled with various flavors of tomato sauce thinking "nah, I really don't want that one"...
