PizZA BurGER!!!!!

This is one of my favorite meals right now!! A pizza burger with broccoli. I browned 96% lean ground beef and added homemade marinara sauce. I ate it on a whole wheat bread bun that I scooped the middle out of with italian cheese on top. Here is the recipe for the marinara sauce (courtesy of the Biggest Loser recipe book):

    1 cup minced yellow or white onion
    1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
    1/4 cup water
    2 tbsp tomato paste
    2 teaspoons honey
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Spray a medium nonstick saucepan and place over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until just becoming tender. Reduce the heat to low and stir in tomatoes, water, tomato paste, honey, oregano, and pepper flakes. Cover and cook for at least 1 hour.

Makes 7 (1/2 cup) servings, about 3 1/2 cups sauce

Each serving has 43 calories!
