Spaghetti Sauce Mix

This is a dry mix that you put in an airtight container and store in a cool dry place. It might be a nice gift too, if you know someone who enjoys making spaghetti sauce from scratch.


  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup dried minced onion
  • 1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
  • 3 Tbsp. of dried vegetable or sweet pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbsp. of Italian seasoning
  • 4 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. dried minced garlic

Additional Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 6 oz. can of tomato paste


Combine first eight ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool and dry place for up to a year. Yield: 4 batches, 1 cup total.

To Prepare Spaghetti Sauce: In a skillet, brown beef; drain. Stir in 1/4 cup of the spaghetti sauce mix, water and tomato paste. Bring to boil, boil and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Yield: About 3 cups sauce per batch.

If you are giving this as a gift, attach a card with the preparation instructions. :)
