Spatini FAQs

Spatini spaghetti sauce mix has been discontinued for retail distribution. You will have a hard time finding it in any local food stores. However it is not discontinued to many large food distributers that sell to restaurants and other facilities. This is how we are able to offer fresh Spatini for sale to you.

Most of what you will find on the Internet and from us are 15 ounce packs. These are much larger then the boxes originally found in the stores. A 15 ounce pack will produce 2.5 gallons of sauce.

I have talked with so many people that miss having this sauce. Order Spatini today from us and you will be having that famous spaghetti dinner again soon!

*** UPDATE *** Some people have asked for more details on this product.

The package is exactly as pictured above. It says Spatini – Seasoning for Fresh Italian Sauce – A Blend of All Natural Herbs and Spices. It is a 15 OZ pack which is equal to 6 of the boxes that used to be sold in the grocery stores.

Here is some more information from the back of the package:


Seasoning mix used to flavor spaghetti sauce


In a large saucepot, combine the following ingredients: 1 # 10 can tomato paste, 2 # 10 cans water, 1 pouch Lawry’s Spatini Seasoning, 1 cup oil. Simmer, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Yield per package is 2 1/2 gallons.

  • Is it certified Kosher? If so what designation and by which authority?

  • Hi Rebecca. I will get an answer for you tomorrow on that but my first thought is no since I don’t remember seeing that on any of the packaging. I will update this comment once I find out for sure.

  • I have some of the old three packs from a few years ago. Can I still use them?

      My last box is over 10 YEARS OLD! I still use it sparingly, and it’s still great. But that’s just me.

  • I would say no to the old 3 packs. They have to be at least 2 years old. Just to be on the safe side…

  • Why is it discontinued? Any thought of bring back the 3 pack boxes? We really miss it. It is a hassel to buy through the internet. Would rather just pick it up at the local grocery store… Please bring it back!!!

    Dealy missing your product!

  • Do you know the amount from this large size that would equal one of the old packets? My father’s recipe calls for one packet. Thanks!

  • Nevermind 😉 I should read everything before I comment!

  • Rebecca – This product is not Kosher.

    Chelene – Sorry we do not know the answers either. We are not the manufacturer of this product.

    Allison – No problem! Glad you found it.

    I’m interested in the package size you have for Spatini. Where can I order it, and for what price? It makes the best sauce I’ve ever eaten. I bought some several years ago in Front Royal,Va. and have been looking for it ever since. Thank you for your reply. Carole Rivers

  • I have an old recipe that calls for one packet of Spatini. How many ounces, or teaspoons, was that?

  • I knew it would come! The question on how much Spatini was in the old package! I have answered this hundreds of times via email! The answer is on our home page where you purchase Spatini.

    But just for reference…. here it is yet again…

    It originally came 3 packs to a box.
    Each pack made 1 pint of sauce.
    The box was 2.4 oz and each pack was .08 oz
    .08 oz = 8 tsps = 2 tbsp + 2 tsp = 40 ml

    • GREAT STUFF, I’m glad I found your website. I grew up on Spatini. Mon has been using it for almost 50 years.
      I think it should be 0.8oz per package, as per your home page.
      I sure hope you continue to supply Spatini for many more years.

      • I, too, grew up with/on Spatini, out East, just outside of Philly, PA. After my family moved to the mid-west, we had to have it shipped from my aunt in VA, so all of our kids have also grown up with it. I just used up my VERY LAST packet (it’s @ least 10 yrs. old) and more or less went into a panic. So I’m ecstatic to find that I can now order it on line. Thnx SO much!!

    • THANKS for posting this conversion, it is so important for a good number of recipes. I have found so many uses for this, that I can’t function without it. Sort of the “Italian cousin” to the (also famous) Lipton onion soup mix!

  • My dad always used this and was really bummed when it discontinued. He now uses Lawry’s Spaghetti Sauce mix. Since Spatini is also made by Lawry’s, any chance it might be the same product with new packaging? I am going to compare the ingredients but either way I think I will order my dad some of the “real thing!”

  • I think the ingredients in the Lawrys Spaghetti Sauce mix is different then Spatini. Some folks have told me that they tried it and it tasted different. I would stick with the original Spatini!

    Please help me kind this. We love this for School Spaghetti, can not find from any sales rep. Where can I buy this? Or do I have to go thur you.

    • You can buy it from our website if you wish. Some food distributors may carry it that sell to restaurants and such.

  • Can you tell me what the shelf life is for this product? Thank you

    • The packages are fresh and received in weekly from the manufacturer. They have a code on that I am uncertain how to decode it. I have been told though that the shelf life is about 12-18 months.

  • I have old individual packets that I have had for a few years and they still taste great. They have been kept in a dark pantry and are fine. I think once the larger packet is opened it needs to be poured into a container that can be sealed tightly.

    came I buy spatini spagheti sauce in any stores on long island,ny

    • I said this before and I will say it again and again. Please do not ask if you can buy Spatini in your area. I have no idea the answer to this… but I would venture to say no as it is very difficult to find. Sorry!

  • I grew up eating this stuff almost every week! When it started disappearing from store shelves years ago, my mom found a place that sold it while traveling. She bought everything they had, and we used that supply for nearly 10 years. Not sure what the “official” shelf life is, but it still tasted great after all those years.

  • Hi, I was wondering what the sodium content was in one package? thanks

  • Who is the manufacturer of this now? It was a small company that was purchased by Unilever, but I see it says McCormick on your website. When I look at the McCormick website, it isn’t listed. I just don’t want some made in China knockoff, that’s all, but look forward to ordering from you. And, thanks!

  • Hi. I purchased spaying from the Vermont country store. It gives you. The directions for conversion to make one pint etc. this will be my first. Experience in using this product…..I can’t wait to try it.

  • Does spatini have gluten?
    Thanks. Colleen

  • For those who used Spatini in the old 3 pack box, do you remember the Itailian Meatloaf on the Spatini box? I’ve been hunting it for years. Thank you!

  • I have celiac disease. Is it gluten free?

  • I used it to make meatloaf. The recipe was on the old 3 pack box. Do you have the recipe?

  • Please post the recipe of paste and water for the individual box amount of spatini you have previously posted- thank you
