Expert Tips

  • Spinach offers a host of nutrients including vitamins A and C. Vitamin A is key for healthy vision.
  • Look for pasta sauce containing less than 300 mg sodium per 1/2-cup serving.
  • For fresh herb flavor, use a combination of 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, oregano, thyme and Italian parsley for the dried Italian seasoning.
