I did the same things with canned soups also, adding mushrooms, wine, noodles ...
I did it up to a month ago, and I'm triple that age
Everytime I brought up jazzing up jar sauce someone would say I might as well start from scratch, so I'm just starting to learn how.
There's some great tips here I'm reading that should work for any sauce, jar or scratch.
I think I found a new use for pork ribs

Don't believe I've ever heard of that sauce, but I'll keep an eye out.

I use Barilla Green and Black Olive. Love it!

LOL Lee - I'm glad I saw this because I was trying to figure out how to clarify without sounding like a I guess if you've never heard of it it certainly wouldn't have made sense to connect it to the name of the jarred sauce!

The Heinz Traditional comes in a can, as do the other Heinz "flavors". They are all pretty good but the Traditional is seriously good!

Bucky - when you make your fra diavolo try adding about 2 oz. of vodka to it as it cooks. Interesting flavor layer.

I used to buy Prego then saw the Heinz cans were about half the price so got two to try. I always add stuff anyway. It was the best thing I ever did! I never buy anything else. My boys like the Four Cheese as a base and then I always add some kind of meat (hamburger, smoked sausage, Bob Evans Original Sausage, shredded chicken, whatever I have). I like to carmelize some diced onions, peppers and mushrooms to add sometimes and I usually add more garlic somehow, either minced or powdered depending on what's readily available. I'll put the red wine on the list. I have a small bottle of Sutter Home Merlot in the fridge that I want to use up. Into the sauce it goes!

Let me know how the Merlot does. Merlot wouldn't be a choice for me due to the herbal/dill quality in most. Not sure how it would work in the sauce. Certainly worth a try to use it up though. I am curious so do let us know! Thanks. I was a Prego girl too until I found Heinz. I can't really brag on it enough!

I am confused about this Heinz sauce. Is it a spaghetti sauce like their Classico brand or is it something else altogether?

KE is actually talking about using ketchup. It's an NC thing...

Seriously though, Heinz Tomato sauce comes in can, not in a bottle. Most stores should carry it.
