Spaghetti Sauce Mixture - For your home or for a Gift

Do you need a spaghetti sauce quickly? Have you run out? Do you want something homemade and not with a store bought taste? This mixture is for you. Quick and easy it was given to me by a friend I used to work with and every time I see it, it brings a smile to my face to think of her. Another great use for it? A gift!

If you have a friend who needs a little pick me up, why not share this little heart warming gift? It would also be great for a new neighbor who just moved in or even as a little birthday gift to a coworker. Print out the recipe on a cute card or type it out with a kitchen graphic. In a small basket or other container place a small jelly jar or ziploc of this mixture along with a $1.00 package of dried pasta. You could add a big bow even nestle the jar and package in a nice country napkin. If you feel so inclined, add a loaf of french bread. Wha la! Cute and affordable.
