Spaghetti Sauce Mix

I have come across Spegetti Sauce Mix, which is a seasoning pkg that you add to can or fresh tomatoes or even can tomato sauce. The brand I saw was McCormicks and Lawerys. I have never heard of it and was just curious if anyone has ever used it and what were their thoughts. I always make my own.

Seems like another product geared towards people with no clue in the kitchen. .

These two brands have had the product out for years here in Canada. I have never tried it (and never will), but there must be a market for it because they still produce it.

I agree. In all likelihood, it is loaded with salt as are most concoctions of that nature.

maybe it's the excess spillage from the prefab "Italian Seasoning" line, cleverly re-marketed.

Lawry's most popular product is a concoction called "Seasoning Salt" with the second word the most operative one. So yes, you are right in your assumption!

Being 50% Italian, I have to agree with Tatt on this ... I cannot imagine a packet for my pasta sauce ...

It is so simple to prepare a real heaven scent divine fresh tomato sauce ...

See Pasta Section with numerous recipes from uncountable members.

Have lovely summer,
Margi.

The packets were what my mom used to make spaghetti sauce when I was a kid. I actually liked it. Sure wouldn't use it now, though.

Know what you mean, Dawg. I used to love the Chef Boy-R-Dee (sp) pizza kits. I tried one a couple years back, just for a taste of my youth. Those things are terrible. What was I thinking!

But yes, I agree with the others. The sauce mixes are what you use when you don't know anything about seasonings. They make something you can put over cooked pasta. I'm just not sure what that something is. It's certainly not a great marinara.

Ok...here's the deal. When I have time to make the sauce myself I cut all if the veggies and make a wonderful sauce. Sometimes the men are left to fend for themselves in this house, and they do not cook much. They add this seasoning to tomato paste, tomato sauce, cocoa, sugar, etc. and really feel like they are cooking. It actually turns out pretty good. It does have lots of salt, so I buy the no salt added paste and sauce. Works for this house.


I have also given this as a gift for weddings with pans and things to go with.
