Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

Close, but wayyyyyy too salty! Can't be right, 2 tsp's of salt PLUS 2 tsp. of all seasoned salt? I tried it, and almost choked, it might work with just the 2 tsp. seasoned salt, omitting the 2 tsp. of regular salt. ps call lawry, owned by unilever, 1-800-9lawrys,,,,,i think, the number is on the spatini box, which has been discontinued.

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I just found out this was discontinued, I am so sad. My recipe is as follows. I can use all other ingredients without the Spatini but it will be missing that added kick. My ex husband told me that another company will be making a product that will be close to Spatini. When I know what it is I will post the information.

  • 1 medium jar of Ragu
  • 1 small can of hunts tomato sauce
  • 1 small can of tomato paste
  • Ad
  • salt & pepper
  • garlic powder (lots)
  • oregano

Meatballs: ground meat mix with only garlic powder and form them and cook n sauce

Cook everything for 45-60 minutes

Serve over pasta

This is to die for!

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I tried the recipe for Spatini above, and also found it salty. (And I already eliminated the regular salt)

I tried a bunch of recipes and think I came pretty darn close to making my own Spatini. Had some tonight and it was very very close.

If anyone is interested in the recipe, email me at djhassoun AT nycap.rr.com . (02/18/2007)

We want Spatini back. I personally have been using it for the 42 years I've been married and my mother before that. I tried last week with other spices and my son said " What's wrong with the spaghetti, it has no taste".

Borden's did that with Creamettes, now it's back on the market. (02/20/2007)

We too have been using Spatini Spices for more than 40 years. We dont know what to do either. We have some on the shelf in Arizona but none on the east coast. We need the receipe! We should contact the company and ask them to post it on the net--it is the right thing to do. HELP!

We think it has sugar, salt, onion power, garlic power, potato starch, beet power for color, yeast extract, and maybe ground oregano, and ground basil. Here is the phone number 1800 952-9797 (02/25/2007)

I have also used Spatini for over 25 years and was absolutely crushed to find out yesterday that it had been discontinued. This was only after the 4th grocery store that I ventured to advised me of this information. What I did find that was almost as good as Spatini was McCormicks packet of spices which retails for approximately 89 cents a pack. The family loved it and never realized the differece. (02/26/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I have been everywhere looking for this beloved family favorite! I wrote an email to Lawry's at their webste WWW. LAWRYS .com I asked them to please do not discontinue it. It is one of the few reminders I still have of my mother who has been gone for twelve years now. I know that many feel the same way. Spatini could never be duplicated!!

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I called Lawrys and they said they are telling people to buy the Lawrys dry "original" spaghetii sauce mix. I can't believe how upset I actually am over this. Spatini has been our family secret recipe for hamburger barbque forever! I asked if enough people call might they continue making it again and they said "you never know". Then they tried to get my name and address to send me coupons and such. Didn't know if I could trust it, or if Iwould be on some huge mailing list then. I miss you spatini! (03/01/2007)

Using spatini sauce mix is the only way I will eat spaghetti, today I went to six different markets looking for some spatini I had no idea it was discontinued. Please put it back on the market I love spaghetti. I'm the one who fixes the spaghetti for the family since my mother past, and we always used spatini.

Another sad Spatini customer. My mother introduced me to this dry seasoning. I tried 3 different stores to purchase this product and one store manager told me it was discontinued. How can they discontinue a product that's been around for so long. I made meatballs and sauce for my son who came home from college and it just wasn't the same. Maybe Lawry's will read this posting and bring this product back. I miss my mom and I miss this wonderful mix. (03/03/2007)

I just found out last evening (3/3/07) that Spatini has been discountinued. BRING ME TO TEARS! My Nana is deceased now for 23 years and SPATINI is the "secret ingredient" contained in her lucious ITALIAN MEATBALLS. Those meatballs are a sentimental food to me. And I recently shared my meatballs at work and they were the RAVE! The company better 'rethink' this decision!!!! (03/04/2007)

my mom has used spatini to make her spaghetti sauce and bbq since I was a kid and taught me how to cook them with it. I hate companies who take products off the market, when a large amount of population use them they better bring it back. (03/04/2007)

I too was introduced by my mom to Spatini over 40 years ago. I used it in tons of recipes to enhance flavor. Perhaps we should begin an email campaign to Lawry. Money talks. It enough people contact them, maybe they will reconsider or at least post the recipe. (03/04/2007)

I am going crazy because I do not like spaghetti sauce without spatini.....I can not believe it is discontinued.....how upsetting.......i sent my husband out to 5 stores and he doesn't look for things very well in a store and he said he can not find it, then he said they discontinued it....I thought he was lying......i told him don't come home without it....He is home but no spatini....boo hoo.......

We have always used Spatini spaghetti sauce mix but it has been discontinued at my store. (Giant)

I have found that McCormick makes an item called "Thick & Zesty" spaghetti sauce mix in an envelope that is a very good replacement for Spatini.

I too am disappointed in the discontinuation of Spatini. I have been using it for 30 years in my meatloaf which my family loves. I have also shared it with friends and family. We have searched through stores in the Lehigh Valley to find out it was discontinued. I wrote to Lawry's and they never responded. What a disappointment. We LOVE Spatini, please bring it back!

On the other hand, had she never told me about that mix in the first place I wouldn't be I the quandry that I am today...hmmmm! Darn Liz! (03/08/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

Homemade homemade Spatini (tasted very much like the original)

  • 6 tsp. brown sugar
  • 4 tsp. parmesan cheese
  • 4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. basil
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • 2 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. rosemary
  • 1 tsp. sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. dill
  • 1/2 tsp. taragon

Grind in blender and keep wrapped up in freezer

Use three teaspoons per 6 oz of paste or 15 of sauce

This is not as salty as Spatini. I also added dried minced garlic to the sauce after I started cooking it and a bit of the minced garlic in a jar to give it a fresher taste.

If you add fresh parsley with any dried spice it will intensify the spice and give it a fresh spice taste (03/10/2007)

By Greg

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

Correction to Spatini Recipe posted 3/10/07

Meant, I added some dried minced onion to the sauce (not dried minced garlic) after I started cooking the sauce.

You also might want to add a bit more onion powder after you start cooking the sauce (I didn't want to over do the onion powder in the mix); I liked the sauce with a bit more onion powder (but was also recreating my mom's recipe (which is not all Spatini for seasoning)). Taste it while you are cooking and add more onion powder if you like.

I made spaghetti sauce last night and thought it quite Spatiniesque. The bit of the minced garlic in a jar added did add a bit more kick

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

My mother used Spatini as far back as I can remember. I've used it for the 40 years I've been married. For the 10 years my son has been married, his wife asks me to make my spaghetti for her birthday. We had the last Spatini spaghetti for her birthday on Mar. 8. I don't know what we'll use now. I'm not Italian, so Spatini was my only recipe. (03/11/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

For several weeks I went from store to store looking for spatini. I called my mother and she said that it was a good selling item that they just might have run out. A week later I finally went up to customer service and asked them myself. They said it was discontinued. I was very upset. I called my mother and she was upset too. We have been using spatini for generations. Please bring it back. I can't make my spaghetti with meatsauce anymore.

You have taken away my secret for the best spaghetti that my entire family has enjoyed for years. My mother and Grandmother have used it for many many years and I am speaking for them because they don't have a computer. They are as outraged as I am and as everyone else here is. How many people have to beg and plead before you bring it back? People are making a killing on ebay selling it, but it won't be on ebay forever! Please, please, please bring it back! Thank you!

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

Hi Mike:

I posted the recipe on here on 3/10/07. (making sure you know, I am not Son of Spatini, was just writing a reply to his posting on here).

It does not taste exactly like Spatini, but it did create a flavorful sauce with some zest to it. I have also tried adding a slice of orange peel to the sauce (not zested up, just put as a slice in during cooking), to give the sauce a bit more zing.

If you don't want to buy all of the individual italian seasonings, just buy them together as italian seasoning. Also, a bit of fresh parsley will freshen up the taste of dry seasonings. And, you may want to add a bit more onion powder and parmesian cheese after you have started cooking the sauce. (03/27/2007)

By kendall.

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

That's the problem. Spatini was never marketed properly. It has never been prominently displayed on shelves and there are many times when I've had to spend time looking for it, even in our regular grocery store.

Most people I talk to have never heard of it but once they try it, they're hooked and ask me where they can find it.

Maybe if Unilever knew how to market something properly, we wouldn't have this problem.

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I found a recipe in Reader's Digest Great Recipes for Great Health that tastes a lot like Spatini.

  • 1/2 cup onion flakes (or 1/4 cup onion powder)
  • 1/2 cup parsley flakes
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon each dried thyme and basil
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic flakes (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 4 large bay leaves, crumbled fine (it is a myth bay leaves are posionous -- one can also find bay leaf powder)

(IMPORTANT: (You will need to add a tablespoon of Parmesian or Romano cheese for each four teaspoons of the mix AFTER you start cooking -- DO NOT ADD to the mix to store it))

A teaspoon you eat with is usually a real teaspoon... A tablespoon you eat with is 4 teaspoons (so if you measure with an eating tablespoon use one tablespoon plus a teaspoon), or to each 2 teaspoons if you grind the mix in a blender)

(what is in parenthesis above is my added)

Place all ingredients in a 1-pint jar, cover tightly and, shake well to mix. Store in a cool, dark, dry place for up to 2 months. Makes 1 and 1/2 cups (of if you put it in a blender 3/4 cups)

NOTE: This recipe has in it NO salt and less sugar than Spatini (you will need to add salt after you start cooking the sauce, if you like salt)

I put this in a blender and added a bit more onion powder and it was a great substitute.

After you start cooking the sauce, add about a tablespoon of onion flakes if you substitute the onion powder for onion flakes.

Use 4 teaspoons of the mix for each 6 oz can of paste or 12 oz can of sauce

OR

If ground in blender; 2 teaspoons of the mix to each 6 oz can of paste or 12 oz can of sauce.

And again, after you start cooking (or if making meatloaf, after you have added the spice to the meat) add 1 tablespoon of Parmesian or Romano cheese for each 4 teaspoons (or 2 teaspoons if you grind the mix in blender) and then salt to taste (and you may want to add a small bit more sugar (small bit).

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I have considered contacting the Better Business Bureau and telling them that Lowry is passing of it's Lawry Mix as a substitute for a Spatini.

Lawry has to know it's mix is not similar to Spatini.

Perhaps Americans should boycott all Lawry products until they start conducting better business.

We should use Lawry's bad sales attempt of pushing their Lawry Mix on us and their contempt for the people who have been cooking for with Spatini (a product on the market for 50 years) as an example of bad business practices.

By Greg (05/13/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I got through to the Lawry's 800 number. While on the phone I asked for an address where I could send my written comments. The address is:

Unilever Consumer Services
920 Sylvan Ave.
2nd Floor
Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632

I sent in my complaint and told them that I for one am boycotting Unilever products (you'd be surprised what all they make) because of the loss of Spatini. Other may wish to do the same... I hope (05/16/2007)

BRING BACK MY SPATINI

The feedback should show the company that Spatini is in great demand, I was in 3 states trying to buy it. Why is it when you find something so good that they up and take it off the market? Shame on you! We still live in America! (05/20/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

My mother in law makes the best spaghetti. What did she make it with? Spatini of course. I searched at every grocery store in the area for spatini so she could make us spaghetti yesterday. Then I was told it was discontinued. the spaghetti just wasn't the same without the spatini. BRING BACK SPATINI PLEEEEEAAAAASSE!!!!! (05/21/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I and my family have been using this for 3 generations. Soon my son would be using it. I can not tell you how upset we all are. We use this product 5 out of 7 days per wk. We are boycotting all of the products that we use from this company! Bring it back and soon or lose lots of customers. Then you will have to cancel all of your products! (05/22/2007)

By Dana leonetti

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

My mother has been using Spatini since I was a baby. I'm so disappointed and upset about this. I just called them to make a complaint and the operator I talked said she was upset about it too since she also used it. She said that stores weren't taking enough demand for it so they stopped ordering it. She also said the only places that would have it now, if they have any, would be Big Lots or discount stores. I'm so annoyed that they would get rid of a product that my family has been using since before I was born. (05/23/2007)

By patricia robinson

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I am very upset that Spatini is no longer being made. My mother who has been gone for 40 years introduced me to Spatini. My sister, daughter and I used it in all kinds of recipes, not just for spaghetti. I guess the almighty dollar is more important than producing a quality product. (05/29/2007)

By Bev E

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

My mom was using spatini. I grew up with this....it's so sad--I used to brag. Why get rid of a great product? I want spatini back...I haven't ate spaghetti ~ it's the only kind I like!

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

Uggh, so that's why I can't find it anywhere! I have used McCormick's spaghetti sauce mix recently and it is similar. I made my sauce and meatballs for a recent Grad party to RAVE reviews once again. The McCormicks stuff is not easy to find, not every market in my area carries it. Giant Markets so far has been the only place I consistently purchase it at. (06/12/2007)

By Barbara

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I am very sad that I can not find this sauce mix anywhere! I got hooked on it from my then to be mother-in-law and it was THE BEST! Now 17 years later I was still using it and even got my kids hooked on it, who are VERY picky about sauce, well picky in general. They refuse to use any other sauce because it isn't like Spatini. They love it because its plain and just has a great taste, as do I. PLEASE BRING IT BACK, ITS THE BEST! Please let me make my kids happy and me for that matter. (06/13/2007)

By Missy Frindt

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I live in Central PA and the local grocery store here STILL carries Spatini!! Are you speaking of the stuff that comes in a little packet that you mix with your spaghetti sauce, or is this something else?

The grocery store is called WEIS MARKETS, and I'm not sure where you all live that like Spatini, but I believe that Weis has stores in only a few states. (06/14/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I too am very disappointed to discover that Spatini has been discontinued! One of my husband's favorite dishes is Spatini and Spam on pasta. (Chop the Spam into half inch squares, fry, and add to sause. One can of Spam per packet of Spatini.) I have only two envelopes left! AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH! So, now is gone yet another of his favorites. And mine too! (06/14/2007)

By Kimberly

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

Please put spatini back on our store shelves. I have used it for 37 years. I have never made my spaghetti sauce without it. My family is very upset when I told them we will not be having homemade spaghetti sauce again. Please bring spatini back. Nothing else will ever compare to it. Why in the world would you discontinue a very good product lots of people buy. Please bring SPATINI back!!!! (06/15/2007)

By Carol

Very Disappointed

I have also used Spatini for over 31 years and was absolutely crushed to find out that it had been discontinued. We live in Texas and would have it shipped by the case from relatives in PA . I used it in a wide varity of cooking and baking dishes. I'm am very disappointed (06/16/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

My mother has been making Spatini spaghetti sauce my whole life, 30 something years! She passed the recipe down to me and now my wife loves it as much as I do. We had to have friends ship it to us here in the west (not available out here), then I found it on Amazon.com and bought it by the case. Now NO MORE SPATINI!?!?!? What will we do?? I just purchased several boxes on ebay at a much inflated price, but it will be well worth it to have Spatini a little while longer :( Just called the Lawry's number 1-800-896-9067 and cried on their shoulder, she said there are no plans to bring it back at this point. I guess all good things must come to an end.... (06/21/2007)

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I was so disappointed when I learned that Spatini is not being made anymore. I am 57 years old and my mother used it when I was a kid. And I have been using it over the past 37 years myself and my children have been using it the last few years in their recipes too. Help! What can we do? Is there anything out there that compares? No. I already know the answer. (06/28/2007)

All I can say is FORGET Lawry's... We have used Spatini for years and now you pull the plug on it? I will never buy any of their products again...

I have been using Spatini for over 20 years. My mother in law told me about it. My husband is really upset its the only thing we use to make spaghetti sauce for spaghetti and lasagna. We are now boycotting ALL of Lawry's products until Spatini is brought back. I wonder if anyone has send this link to Lawry's to let them know just how many customers they are losing (07/16/2007)

By Ginger

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I just got off the phone with Lawrys. They say they don't plan on making spatini anymore, but they are taking peoples names and forwarding it to the marketing division. If enough of us call them we can try to get Spatini brought back. Its worth a try and it only takes a few moments to call them. Let them know you wont purchase any Lawrys products unless they bring back Spatini. Here is the number you can call. 1-800-745-9232 (07/16/2007)

By Ginger

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I'm very angry. I live for spatini! I have not made any Italian recepies since this was discontinued. I planed on opening a restaurant some day however now I probably won't. Why did you discontinue the best ingredient ever? (07/17/2007)

By linda

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

My wife and I are VERY picky eaters and Spatini was the ONLY tomato sauce we would use. I grew up on it and introduced it to her years ago. Now it's gone? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It's a great product and everyone that's heard of it loves it. Sounds like a marketing issue! Don't take it out on the rest of us! (07/18/2007)

By Geoff

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

When I was a kid in the 60's and 70's the only spaghetti sauce my family liked was Delgosos. (not sure of spelling) It was available in Pennsylvania, but not Florida so we would bring it back with us when we went up North to visit relatives. At the time most spaghetti sauces had a high sugar content and sometimes vinegar to make them sweet and tangy. Prego is an example. We hated that. It tastes like catsup, or sloppy joe sauce, but must be popular with a lot of people. Now my favorites are Classico and Old World Style Ragu. I also check the sugar content when other brands are on sale. I can add garlic and oregano if a sauce is bland, but if it is too sweet I am wasting my money. (07/19/2007)

By SusannL

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

After reading all and I mean all of your posting I thought I'd throw my 2 cents worth in. My mother and grandmother used Spatini, and loved it. Then it stopped being made I found this site for the recipe to make your own. It makes memories of thier sauce. Please try the spatini recipe.

http://www.topsecretrecipes.com/home.asp

When you get to site, click recipe icon. Then in search box type spatini and it will take you through the process to have the copykat of our favorite Lawry's recipe. (07/19/2007)

By dpool from memphis

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

I like Classico too because of no sugar added. I had no idea that sugar was such a common ingredient in jarred sauce. Plus, Classico is in regular canning jars that you can reuse for many things, impromptu vases, dry storage, leftovers, gift jars and . . . canning! I drive my husband crazy because I never let him get rid of any of the jars.

I'm sorry about Spatini. I never used it but I certainly would now that I heard all the rave reviews. If you haven't signed the petition, follow the link at the top. Last I checked, there were almost 2000 signatures!

just found out Spatini is gone. Husband ran a restaurant for 40 years and that's what they used in their recipe. I recently got in the habit of adding it to my "own" sauce. Everytime somebody had it I got raves. Bring that baby back! (07/26/2007)

By mo

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

My mom went to a local supermarket and found that Lawry has repackaged the old Spatini brand under a new name called 'Lawry's Spaghetti Sauce'. There was even a sign by this product indicating that it is the orignal 'Spatini' mix. She bought one but we have yet to use it. The price was $1.50 for 1 package - no longer 3 in a box for $1.50!

(07/27/2007)

Please bring the spatini back. I went to every store I knew that carried spatini and could not find it anywhere. I do not understand why they took it off the market. It is a wonderful product and I have used it for years. I do not wish to use Lawry's product. I want to use what I have always use, SPATINI. Do you really have any reason at all why you took it off the market? If you do, please let me hear it. (07/30/2007)

By CORRINE SHERMAN

Spatini Spaghetti Sauce

Lawry made the original Spatini sauce. The renamed and newly packaged 'Lawry Spaghetti Sauce' is supposed to be exactly the same thing and is currently available in supermarkets. My mom bought a package but we haven't tried it yet. I won't believe that it's really the same thing until we taste it. (07/31/2007)

By Jennifer

My mother has used Spatini for over 50 years. It is the only kind of sauce me and my children eat. We have not eaten pasta or homemade pizza for months. I had no clue that they were going to discontinue it. I would have bought them up if I would have known. Please bring Spatini back. (08/29/2007)
