Freezer Cooking - Bulk Spaghetti Sauce

November 7, 2012

With all the talk about budgeting and making ends meet, I thought it would be helpful to show some of the ways I fill our freezer and pantry. 

When shopping, it is good for the budget, to plan on making batches of basics like sauce, cooked meats, foods that can be re-purposed for other meals, and large packages to be divided into smaller ones. 

Starting with a basic item: Bulk Spaghetti Sauce, make this once a month, and have it divided up into containers for all sorts of meals. Much less expensive than buying a jar of premade sauce at a few dollars for one jar. What would you use this for? How about some of these recipes: 

Stuffed Zucchinis with Tomato Sauce

Chili Con Carne

Stuffed Peppers
