Italian Cooking Sauce Mix

Never buy jar sauce again! This is easy to prepare and freezes well. Keep a pint or two in the freezer and you will be prepared. Use this sauce whenever the recipe calls for spaghetti sauce. Recipe comes from Make a Mix Cookery.

This is so easy to do and tastes great. I'll do it again. No need to buy spaghetti sauce jar. And that way I can omit the salt for DH. I used 1 tsp of red pepper flakes. Thanks Paula. Made for Gimme 5 tag game
