Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Sun-dried tomatoes are low in cholesterol and high in fiber while adding lots of flavor to your food! Coconut milk is a great substitution for cream here, as it still keeps the creamy texture of the sauce while keeping out dairy that can upset many peoples' stomachs. Coconut has also been found to lower cholesterol and help manage blood sugars, which can keep you from craving mid-day snacks.
