Spaghetti Sauce - Is there anything decent outside of Prego?

I figure you can't go wrong with Prego, but just to be adventurous I tried a jar of Classico
Four Cheese, I liked the label. That stuff wasn't sauce, it was soup, it's runnier Ragu. Now I'm wondering if I'm depriving myself of a better product due to my, why not, we'll call it ignorance. Seems I can no sooner judge a Sauce by its label, than a book by its cover.

If you have any expertise in this area please feel free to share, I may find I'm already going with the top of the line?

RE: Spaghetti Sauce - Is there anything decent outside of Prego?
Personally I don't go with sauces anymore. I much prefer to boil angel hair pasta in a pan on the stove in garlic salt and water and maybe an onion, then drain away most of the water after the noodles have softened, pour in some cooking wine while adding a bit more garlic salt, and then cover on the grill used to boil it (should now be turned off). After 15 to 20 minutes all the liquid is soaked up and its ready to be served. Sprinkle cheese can be added after serving for extra flavor. Milk can be added when cooking wine is added in the pot to give the pasta a fuller richer taste (milk tends to add more volume than wine alone does). Seasonings and salts can also be used when sprinkle cheese is.

I don't see much use for pasta sauce as it hides the taste of properly cooked noodles that ought to already be packed with flavor.

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.

That sounds delicious, I will try that, but I already know it's going be to much work to make it my regular recipe.

no, not much work, you have to cook the noodles either way, and pouring in flavor and allowing the noodles time to soak it up as they cool off a bit simply is not much work... the good thing is, all the ingredients keep so there generally is no need to go shopping in order to make pasta unless you want to add in an onion... I like to make garlic toast with it though, so I need to pick up bread for that.

RE: Spaghetti Sauce - Is there anything decent outside of Prego?
here's how to make your own basic sauce-


take a pot and add some olive oil or regular cooking oil if that's all you have. crush, slice or just peel and leave whole, a good amount of garlic. add oregano, basil, and pepper.

cook until it's fragrant then add 1 can of crushed tomatoes. Bring it to an almost boil then turn down the heat and simmer it for an hour or 2, don't forget to stir it every now and again.

if you use 2 cans of crushed tomatoes, you can freeze what's left for the next time.

Hugs happy simmering

Yep, it's a bit more spendy, but my theory is if you are willing to have your whole dish be worse at the expense of just 2 bucks or so... that's a bad decision. I think all of the Newman's Own stuff is organic as well, but I may be wrong on that. Either way, it's very good. Their lemonade that comes in the cardboard container is excellent. Almost as good as a San Pellegrino Limonata. They are expensive, but well worth it if you like a good, sour lemonade. As far as spaghetti goes, I think it's one of the few dishes where the leftovers are jus

t as good as the original finished product. When I make it I made so much that I have a gallon sized ice cream bucket full of noodles left in the fridge for the next week. I keep the sauce with the meat in a separate container. If you mix it all together then put it in the fridge it gets weird and the sauce tends to congeal onto the noodles and such.

No overtime you have to experiment. Try a different sauce every time. Amazing that some stuff is high dollar but dollar store on some items taste better.

Good luck!

Anything but Prego. Even Regu is better, and that's garbage.

Make your own. Then nothing is better.
