Waste Less Wednesday

I'm starting a new series today on how to use up things around your house in order to waste less. We all have little bits of ingredients left or an abundance of plastic bags and wonder what to do with them. This series will help us all come up with ideas on how to waste less. Being "green" is the in thing today, but many times being green is also being frugal. Let me know if there is topic you would like covered in this series and I will work my way through the list. I will post a new topic every Wednesday and look forward to hearing your ideas too.

Today's topic is pizza sauce. Do you ever find yourself with just a little pizza sauce left in the jar and not have a clue what to do with it? My favorite way to use up this leftover sauce is to make pizza pasta for one. I boil whatever pasta I have on hand and then add pizza toppings such as pepperoni, sausage, onions, etc. Top it off with the pizza sauce and I have a delicious and quick meal. Of course, you can use the whole jar and serve this as a quick dinner for your family.

Another way to use it up is mini pizzas. Spread the sauce on an english muffin, pita bread, tortilla, or whatever else you have on hand and top with your favorite meat and/or veggies. I like to then add a little cheese and stick it under the broiler for a few minutes. It makes for a yummy and quick lunch.

How do you use up your leftover pizza sauce?
