Meals in a Jar marathon continues with Bow Tie Spaghetti

Over the course of a a few blog posts we have taught you about Meals in a Jar, what you need and how to assemble and cook them. And now we have finally come to the fun part. . . cooking and eating. 
The recipe I have for you today is one of my kids favorites, Bow Tie Spaghetti. 
                                                         looks good doesn't it 

 These are All the ingredients you are going to need:
1/2 cup Tomato Sauce
1/2 tsp chefs choice dry seasoning
1tsp italian seasoning
1/4 cup Thrive Celery
1/4 cup Thrive Chopped Onions
2 Tbsp Thrive Carrot dices
2 Tbsp Thrive Butter powder
1 Tbsp garlic
1 cup Bow tie pasta
1 cup Thrive Ground Beef

Assemble ingredients in the jar one at a time. When all the ingredients have been added put your good oxygen pack in and put the lid on the jar and seal tight. The next morning check to see if the lid clicks. If it clicks you need get a new oxygen pack because that one didn't work. However if there was no clicking then you are good to store. You can store Meals in a Jar for up to 2 years for good quality taste.

Now on to the cooking portion

                  Add 4 cups of hot water in you pan or electric skillet, the add all contents of the Jar.
 Stir to evenly distribute, then put the lid on and cook for 20 min, stirring occasionally. After 20 minuets check to see if everything is cooked properly. If you think the noodles or carrots might need some more cooking add a little more water and cook longer as needed.

In the End you have this really good, nutritious, meal that only took you 20 min.
And yes your family will eat it because its that good.
