I haven't read through the whole thread, but I have "spiffed" up many spaghetti sauces using jarred sauces. Prego is my favorite, even though I have used Hunts many times, along with off-brands. I like to add garlic powder, more italian herbs (especially basil and oregano), sugar, and sauteed vegies (onion, pepper, mushrooms, garlic).

I have never thought of adding wine, unless I was making a crock-pot or oven slow-cook recipes. Good idea!

I have even "spiffed" up jarred spaghetti sauce for pizza!

A little kindness goes a long way.

only my mother in law used Prego because she got to the point where garlic made her dodgy on her stomach.........and it's quite ungarlicy........I love garlic..so when I made it with her Prego sauce I set a certain amount for her and then "doctored" up the rest of it with herbs, sugar, garlic and onions..........my brother in law commented......and this is Prego????....oh......I forgot.....I will also add parmesan cheese........

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
