As you may or may not know, I am single and live alone (well I do have 2 cats). When I cook it usually yields more than one meal. One of my all time favorite recipes is the catch phrase "Spaghetti sauce". I use those terms because with a few "tomato" items I can create a sauce with many uses; not just spaghetti. I go to the grocery store and in the tomato aisle there are all sorts of items. I pick 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can stewed tomatoes, and of course 1 can tomato paste. Its inexpensive, makes a large batch and I have used it to make Lasagna, spaghetti, any pasta dish, stuffing, pizza sauce and chili. The chili I have yet to do.
