“I created this to "stretch" a jar of prepared pasta sauce when we had unexpected dinner guests. Now it's our favorite marinara sauce. The dressing mix envelope size is a guess. The program won't let me continue without a weight. It's the kind you put in a cruet and add water and oil for salad dressing.”
