Spaghetti Sauce Spice Mix

Last night, by request of my three year old, we were having spaghetti for dinner.  It is a great go to meal.  As long as you have some noodles, frozen ground beef and tomato sauce you can whip it up in fifteen minutes.  Just remember to not skimp on the Parmesan.

Spaghetti Sauce Spice Mix

1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
2 1/2 tsp sugar
15 oz can tomato sauce
1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained (optional)

Mix together and grind with mortar and pestle.  Add to tomato sauce and heat through. Add cooked beef if desired.


A second option is to make a bulk amount of the spice mix.

Spaghetti Sauce Spice Mix (In Bulk)

 Note:  This mix makes enough for 12 (15oz) cans of tomato sauce to be turned into spaghetti sauce.

6 Tbsp garlic powder
1/2 C parsley
1/2 C oregano
1 Tbsp pepper
3 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp basil
1/2 Tbsp thyme
1/2 Tbsp sage
2 Tbsp rosemary
1/2 C + 2 Tbsp sugar

Mix together, but to not grind with mortar and pestle.  When needed, grind 3 Tbsp + 1 tsp of the mix with mortar and pestle, add to a 15 oz can of tomato sauce and heat through.  Add 1 pound of ground beef, cooked and drained (if desired).
