Jarred Pasta Sauce

lemarais | Nov 11, 2012 09:27 AM

So you don't feel like making your own pasta sauce-- what to do?

The vast majority of jarred sauces are not very good. There are about 20 bad ones for 1 good one out there.

Here's what I look for:
Italian imported tomatoes
EV Olive oil, with NO OTHER OILS in there
NO SUGAR, NO Corn Syrup, No sweeteners at all.
No unpronounceables.

The only ones I use on a regular basis now are
Paesana Puttanesca
and Moms Marinara.

Any other ideas? Most of the ones in the regular supermarkets are awful, sweetened, and have "vegetable oil" (Canola?) in them.
