Also, I forgot to mention that when I mix the red sauce with the alfredo, it always comes out best if you add some diced garlic while you're cooking the sauce down with the meat, and adding pesto to it when it's about done. I usually get a provalone and mozzarella mix to throw into it too while it's cooking so the cheese gets infused into the sauce. The parmesan comes later. Careful with pesto. It's strong and easy to overdo. Same with garlic. Pasta is my favorite and I've been experimenting with it for years. My specialty is a good chicken alfredo. Me an my gal went to Olive Garden and tried the chicken alfredo a while back and she told me that I should show them how to do it. Maybe she was just being nice because she knows how serious I get about pasta dishes.

I use the Newman's Own band for spaghetti.

Sometimes I mix one jar of the red sauce with one jar of the white alfredo sauce. So good it will ruin your life.

doomed

Hiding

That is what brand I use.... is expensive some places; but one place around here sells it for $1.59 Cheer

I have to agree about Newmans.
Keep jarred sauce in for when making pizzas and always bought Victoria,it's expensive around 6 a jar and ok for a jarred sauce.
Had Newman's Basil or Marania ? at a friends, they used it for chicken parm and it was delicious.
I do drizzle some olive-oil, add chopped fresh basil and parm to it along with a crushed clove of garlic, but I also did that with the Victoria.
Here it goes for around 1.99

So far it sounds like Newman with a little tweaking provided by President Camacho is the way to go. Making your own may actually come out better, but that's to hardcore for me.

Have an epiphany not a cow, the cow is moot anyway.

RE: Spaghetti Sauce - Is there anything decent outside of Prego?
just cooked my angel hair pasta noodles, had an onion, some minced garlic I tossed in, and garlic salt... drained much of the water out, not all, poured in some red wine, added a bit more garlic salt and now am just kicking back for 15 or so minutes while everything is soaked up... if you don't have wine, can always use beer... when everything is soaking up is the best time to add anything you like to it for flavor

I'll drain once more, sprinkle on some cheese, some garlic salt if still needed, and call it ready to eat.

You figure if you try it this way and don't like it, you can still toss on your pasta sauce. I prefer it without though.

Then go Newmans.

Homemade isn't hardcore, unless you don't have time of course.

also when it comes to pasta sauce, I have always liked using cold sauce on hot noodles more than having hot sauce with hot noodles, the colder vegetable taste is more to my pallet

I hear ya man. I'd like to try making my own one day, but I haven't really gotten the bug quite yet when I'm getting hungry and dinner time is coming. I can't imagine a red sauce would be too difficult, but I'm sure I'd mess it up a few times before I even get it decent.

Tomatoes are strong flavor, you have to cook a sauce a long time to get the spices to mix in with the tomato.

For instance, if you got really hot green chilis, too hot, you cool it down in the pot by adding a can of diced tomatoes.

prego is thicker because it has gelatin and corn starch added, that'd be my guess

i sometimes get the newman's brand

Sorry but Newmans is the worst. You can just buy some delmonte diced tomatoes with basil and oregano I think it's called. A good quick recipe would be to brown some ground beef with your favorite spices. Drain that and add delmonte diced tomatoes. Add some extra spices to your taste. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. It also makes a good lasagna meat sauce. Get the no boil noodles and some ricotta cheese and top it with mozzarella or a mix of your favorite cheeses.

The tomatoes are called delmonte basil garlic and oregano. Helps to crush them through a strainer and pick out the chunks you don't want. Then dump the rest in.

My serious sauce is another matter altogether. :)

No I used to use Hunts, but now I open the can and it stinks
DelMonte is really bad stuff

Hunt's also puts out organic tomato sauce but it's hard to find

Buy tomato paste, seasonings and vegetables, and make your own. My wife makes a batch every so often, and freezes it in bags for future meals.

WAY better than the crap you get in those jars.

Have you noticed that the red sauce on __ Parmesan subs is different from shop to shop? I found one place whose sauce I absolutely loved, and asked them to save an empty can of it for me when I came in the next week. These shops buy from companies you've never seen in supermarkets. I ordered what was in the can, and froze it in portions.

If you find something commercial you really like, do what I did for consistent taste.
