I found this somewhere on the web as I was searching for sodium-free alternatives for my DD. She loves stove top mix type meals, but they were absolutely off limits for her salt-free needs. This is a great substitute, easy to make and can be used to make a variety of different stove top meals. One recipe for an Italian skillet dinner is included below; I will add more as I try them. This makes enough for several dinners. Mix it up and store in a plastic container.
