While I do like making my own pasta sauces, I also keep a number of jarred sauces in the pantry for impromptu meals when I just don't feel like making my own. They're also great when tossing together a homemade pizza or bruschetta, yadayadayada. So anyway, was down the pasta aisle yesterday & saw - on sale as a new item - a new jarred sauce with Italian actor Paul Sorvino's mug staring back at me. With one of favorite movies - "Goodfellas" - in the back of mind (who can forget "Paulie" in prison slicing the garlic for the sauce paper-thin with a razor blade?), had to buy a jar of the Marinara.
So, last night we enjoyed a big green salad along with whole-wheat 4-cheese ravioli topped with Sorvino's sauce, which we both voted the very BEST JARRED SAUCE EVAH!!!! Light, fresh, & perfectly balanced. Wonderful stuff (& although I do enjoy making my own pasta sauces, I've also tried a LOT of jarred stuff). Ingredients consist of just "San Marzano tomatoes, imported Fasolino brand Italian olive oil, salt, fresh garlic, fresh basil, fresh oregano, & black pepper".
After last night I went back today & bought a few more jars of the Marinara (also a jar of the "Vodka Sauce" to try - the only other item they produce at this time).
Anyway, I highly recommend at least the Marinara at this time.
