Need low carb Spaghetti sauce recipes

I have discovered the Miracle Noodle and really enjoy spaghetti but the jar spaghetti is so high in carbs ... Just looking for some creative lower carb options.

Hunts has a no sugar added sauce and it is quite good.

anything based on tomato and a bit thick is just going to be higher carb than many of us can eat at all regularly. if you season the sauce well, you can thicken with one of the low carb thickeners like xanthan so you don't have to use so much tomato.

I make well seasoned sauces based on pureed avocado to get them much lower in carbs.

a lot of mushrooms can stretch the tomato carbs too.

the lowest I usually see for jarred sauces is 4 grams per half cup. the lower carb ones are thinner though, so I'm not sure it's worth paying a lot more for them. same effect by thinning a higher carb sauce with some water.
