Uses for Spaghetti Sauce

I love having a good supply of spaghetti sauce in the house. I always have some in my pantry because I stock up on it when it goes on sale for $1 or $1.50. The other day I used a partial jar of sauce and was trying to figure out what to make with the rest and I found a really yummy recipe in the process. The next couple days I am going to try and post the recipes I have tried and liked.

First and most obvious is spaghetti. It doesn't get much easier than this. Just open up a jar, heat it, add hamburger or meatballs, and then serve it over some noodles.

Another quick and easy way to use it is to take tortilla shells and put them in a frying pan. Smear some spaghetti sauce on top and then add either cheddar or mozzarella cheese. I also like to add some meat on top for a little extra flavor. Just cook them until they look nice and brown on the bottom and the cheese is melted. Last put them on a plate and cut with a pizza cutter. Enjoy!
This is the way my husband likes them. Just a little sauce and a little cheddar cheese.
I on the other hand like them this way. I like more sauce, lots of cheese, and meat. I also like to place another tortilla shell on top and then flip it to get both sides nice and crunchy.
I used left over chicken from dinner the night before and then extra hamburger I had from a previous meal I had made. This also makes it a great way to use up some left overs.:)

Be sure and check back Monday for the really yummy recipe I found!


  1. That's a great idea about the tortillas and the sauce! We always end up with extra sauce in our fridge!

  2. Hi Drea, I'm totally going to do this! Great idea! No more wasted spaghetti sauce! Hope you have a great weekend...thanks for the great share. Btw - love all the pics of your sweet baby girl.
