I also use dried oregano in pasta sauce - nearly as much as I use of basil. In our house we tend to cook for our taste. :sly: That said, one time we were visiting family in PA and take-out pizza was ordered. Most members of the fam sprinkled extra oregano on each slice before eating. I'd never had it that way, so I tried it. Yum! IF you like oregano, that is.

I use oregano and/or other similar herbs like thyme, rosemary, marjoram - I like such flavors and see nothing wrong with upping the flavor profile of a simple red sauce. For pizza I will often add herbs to the crust too.

I also add all sorts of extra herbs to my pasta sauce, whether jarred or home-made. I especially love fresh ground fennel seed and oregano.

If you enjoy pizza sauce on spaghetti, go for it.

Which any real Italian will tell you is as it should be.

It's admirable you have firm convictions on what's right and what's not but you should consider there variations that are not wrong, just different. Tomato sauce with oregano is not automatically pizza sauce and nothing else. Lighten up.

To oreg or no is not the question.

And I am unsure how this helps un-confuse Eric in Austin.

To my lay opinion, pasta sauce, marinara sauce and pizza sauce are interchangeable. :) Don Pepino's is a good canned pizza sauce. Also, Gia Russa pizza sauce is pretty good.

I was in Safeway the other day and found a jar of Classico's Spicy Basil and Tomato pasta sauce. I used it on stuffed shells and it was pretty good. In fact, I think that will be my go to for pasta sauce now on.

Yeah, I think Classico may be the best of the inexpensive jarred sauces. It's my go to jarred sauce if I can't buy the locally made stuff or make my own.
