If you must use a jarred sauce?

What is the brand that you use if you have run out of homemade marinara/pasta sauce? I try to buy Barilla pasta sauce. It seems closer to authentic than some of the other brands. I also only buy Barilla pasta.

Classico isn't bad either. I will buy either if there's one brand on sale.

Neighbor woman makes it from scratch and jars it. It's way better than store bought stuff, but we only get a few jars of that. And it doesn't last long. :)

It's just as easy for me to start with a can of crushed tomatoes and make a quick sauce.

If I really needed to use a prepared red sauce I would go with Hunt's no sugar added pasta sauce in a can.

No matter what I start with I add a little of this and a little of that, I've never really tasted the sauce as Hunt's intended it to be!

I go with Hunt's in a can also. It's half the price of many jarred sauces, and it tastes better too.
Most often I make my own.

I go with Don Pepinos, its in a yellow can.
I was surprised I would like it so much, as I always make my own sauce in season.

I like Hunt's too. I also like Emeril's Kicked Up sauce. And most of the time, I make my own.

I tried TJs once and didn't care for it. It's too easy to make my own.

I don't mind bottled sauces but usually doctor the sauce with herbs, garlic, red wine, and home bottled tomatoes. There is usually eniough for several meals.

I like Classico.

Classico or Trader Joe's just to have on hand, but I usually make my own.

Then you're making your own sauce and mixing it with bottled sauce. You should try it without the bottled sauce.

^This^ if I don't have homemade meat sauce in the freezer. Himself is always amazed when I do that. I dunno, seems easy enough to me. I have all of the herbs/spices, can use up the bits of veggies that need to move along, and usually have a box of wine I can dribble in to give it a bit of depth to the flavor. I always stock up on Hunt's 29-oz tomatoes in various textures when the store has them on sale for $1. Cheaper than any pre-made sauce in a jar or can.
