What is your favorite pasta sauce?

I don't make from scratch. I don't have a recipe for it since my mom died. She made the best and she took it with her
I was wondering what you all make for spaghetti?
i just buy the canned or jars of regular red sauce and alfredo.

It is multiple choice if you like.

I like a quick red seafood sauce...olive oil, sliced garlic, rosemary, chopped/diced tomato, safron, orange zest white wine, clams shrimp squid over pasta ... sooooo good and easy.

I brown a pound of hamburger with some chopped garlic and onion

Add chopped celery, onions, sliced mushroom ( can add green pepper too but Paul doesn't like it so I don't)

add some parsley, oregano, basil, salt, pepper,garlic, sugar
a can or two of sliced tomatoes and a can or two of tomato sauce.

Mix well and then let simmer for an hour or two. Delish!

I voted for "Other" because my favorite sauce was not on the list. I can't spell it, either. It's something like "alio e oleo", and is evidently a mixture of olive oil, butter and garlic, with a few parsley flakes tossed in.

I always order it and the waitperson always understands, no matter how badly I mangle the pronounciation.

My two favorite are classic tomato sauce with meat & alfredo. I don't have a recipe for my meat sauce either, I just start tossing stuff in.

Alfredo is my favorite, especially when it's over something like cheese ravioli with a large sprinkling of fresh romano and basil leaves over that. mmmmmmmmmm!

I also do love a good meat sauce:
I roast garlic and EVOO in my terra cotta garlic roaster,
and while it's roasting (in the microwave!), I brown onions in a bit of butter.
When they're nearly clear, I add the garlic, and then add italian seasoning, freshly ground pepper, ground beef (double grind) and italian sausage in the mix. Once that's cooked well, I put fresh tomatoes into the food processor and add those. Then I'll add tomato paste and fresh basil. Once that's cooked in, I'll throw in a few more tomatoes, only this time they're just chopped into chunks. When they're warmed, the sauce is done.

I'm fickle. Sometimes I like Alfredo, sometimes tomato w/o meat. I make about four or five different tomato sauces and enjoy them all depending on my mood. Tonight, for example, I made cheese gnocchi and served it with a hot Italian sausage, pine nut and porcini mushroom tomato sauce. THAT tasted really good (but I was really hungry).
