Friday Food – Quick & Easy Spaghetti Sauce

Last week I posted my Super Spaghetti Sauce – the one with the fresh herbs and all, that simmers all day. Do you want a quicker, easier – delicious, but not quite as over-the-top sauce, for those times you’re in a hurry? Dried herbs and canned tomatoes make this one a cinch. Here’s the recipe for you.

BTW, this is one of our QuikMix Recipes. Use all dried herbs/spices and mix together ahead of time. Then just open your cans, dump in your pre-mixed spices and honey, when you’re ready to make sauce. Make up several batches of QuikMix spices at a time and store each in a small jar, Tupperware container, or zip baggie, to always have a QuikMix on hand.
