      Default stretching spaghetti sauce

      We always have about a serving and a half of spaghetti sauce leftover after the meal. I used to save it with some noodles, but no one ever ate it and I would end up throwing it away. Now I keep plastic container in the freezer for the leftover sauce. After about 3 spaghetti meals, I have enough frozen sauce for 4th meal. It's fast too - I just warm it up instead of having to make it from the beginning. No one at my house is the wiser.

      Another great use for leftover sauce is to make bagel pizzas. A couple spoonfuls of sauce, some shredded mozzarella, diced pepperoni all put onto a toasted bagel and broiled is a great after work/school snack. I use mini bagels that I buy at the bread outlet for snacks, but if I am making this for lunch I will use a regular sized bagel.

      When I have a dab of spaghetti sauce left and it won't be enough for a lunch for one of us it gets recycled into a dip, I just add it to some velveta cheese and melt & serve it with frito dippers or chips. I do the same with dabs of leftover chili.

      i'm always making more then we need. i always have lots of sauce, so i add beans, chili powder and add vegies to taste, and turn it into chili. sometimes i buy the chili seasoning packet and use that. quick and easy.
