DH, Ed, has made his 'signature' spaghetti sauce. Enough for 28 meals for 2 people. We won't even live long enough for eat it all. A friend came for lunch today. And we ate it yesterday. That's a bit off the top.

Should add that because we are in a condo we don't have all the necessary ingredients and thus he added only a bit of oregano and no basil at all. It has mushrooms and onions and celery. Tomatoes.

So I'm thinking a sort of Lasagna? or Moussaka? Something with tortillas?

Other ideas please. (no seafood please, we don't eat it.) Thanks :rolleyes: .

Mix it with some red wine and beef stock to make a braising liquid?

Meatballs, gnocchi, eggplant parmesan, osso buco, pizza... And freeze the leftovers in small portions.
It seems almost impossible to have too much tomato sauce!

Yep, I'm with the "freeze it" folks. You can freeze at least half of it in small portions - say about 2 cups - in plastic freezer bags that will lie flat and that you can stack.

My omission: We have only a very small freezing unit in the condo fridge and won't be here long enough probably to eat all the sauce. The freezer has also pulled pork, Hot & Sour soup, enchilada makings, frozen meat for the dogs, etc, etc. And TOO much spaghetti sauce.

Thanks for the ideas, eGulleters.

Trade with the neighbors, or just give some away. Use it as a braising liquid for inexpensive beef....but you're still gonna have to eat LOTS of it.

Sweeten it up a bit, put it on toasted hamburger buns and call it sloppy joes.

I vote for making a huge batch of meatballs and inviting all your neighbors over for spaghetti dinner!
