Prepared Pasta Sauce ... WHY???

CindyJ | Mar 3, 2007 06:11 AM

While I understand the convenience of buying pasta sauce in a jar to prepare a meal in a pinch, what I don't understand is why so many people do it regularly. Making a great pasta sauce is not rocket science, and, if it's a meatless sauce you want, it doesn't take long to prepare or cook, either. Furthermore, sauce can be made in quantity and frozen in smaller portions, so it's convenient and far less costly than the "celebrity" brands -- Rao's, Patsy's, etc. Can someone explain to me why you buy the prepared stuff?
