Description from Laurie: I've been using this recipe for 17 years. A friend of mine was a nurse's aide at a nursing home, and was given this recipe by a sweet old Italian lady there--so what a surprise, since this recipe calls for all powdered spices. Besides this recipe making really delicious sauce, it is consistently good because everything is measured. I also measure the spices into a baggie and take it on vacation to make for dinner at the rental. I make the sauce nearly every week because it is a family favorite and the price is right (the sauce costs .88 per can and the paste is .33 a can, and all my spices are the cheapie brand. Sometimes I double it and freeze some --- but the armona is so enticing that it makes it worth it to cook it up fresh.
