Spaghetti Seasoning Mix

My daughter is almost two and like most kids her age she LOVES pasta with tomato sauce. I used to just buy ragu, but then I read the ingredients (milk? in pasta sauce?) so now I make spaghetti seasoning mix and combine it with a can of crushed tomatoes instead and get that same ragu taste without any added dairy.

Spaghetti Seasoning Mix

1 tablespoon corn starch
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon parsley
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon sage

What else you'll need

1 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes (or about 2 pounds fresh tomatoes)
1 pound of ground beef, browned (optional)

Combine tomatoes, beef and mix in a slow cooker and cook on low for a few hours until hot. I served mine with bow tie pasta because fun shapes taste better.

This summer when my garden starts producing too many tomatoes I plan to use this mix to make sauce out of them for the freezer instead of letting them rot on the vines like I did last year.
