What's your favorite jarred spaghetti sauce?

Mine used to be Bertolli. For some reason it hasn't seemed as good lately. Currently eating Classico, and I'm not a fan. What do you normally get?

Bertolli tomato and basil. But honestly, I buy whatever's on sale anymore--Barilla, Classico, even the house brand. The other day I bought the Kroger brand for 99 cents.

We've been using the Costco brand. Good price, and we like the taste.

I am learning how to make a good sauce from scratch. Butter while cooking the ground pork with ground hamburger is the current favorite technique around here. Simmering for several hours works well when making it from scratch.

I prefer Bertolli 5 cheese.

I agree that it doesnít seem quite as good as it used to, but it is still better than other brands.

I like Rao's. It is pricey but I seldom use jarred sauce anymore. For all other dishes like lasagne, baked ziti, etc. I make my own sauce.

We like Prego or Newman's Own. But often we buy whatever is least expensive and doctor it up anyway.

We used to always go with Ragu, but then it changed and we didn't like it anymore, that is when I tried making my own, the first attempt we did not like, the second was a winner, now my daughters say mine is the best and want my recipe when I die (lol). It makes a lot so we have it the first night and have 4 more batches to freeze for other nights.
I also discovered it was easier than I thought.

I read the label and find the one with the fewest non-real food ingredients. Classico is generally where I land, but not always. I need to get back to making my own sauce.

Thereís a local place that sells their sauce in the local regional grocery store. Itís delicious, contains no preservatives, and is really delicious. Itís also really expensive.

I like Bonjiovi, Jon Bon Joviís sauce too. My hair band roots are showing.

Thanks everyone! Crazy how different each one tastes. Now we all need to get together, each buy a different jar, and have a taste testing!

Usually we make our own but we like:
1. Victoriaís (we get it from Costco because itís expensive - itís a pantry staple)
2. Bertolli (if in a pinch)

I use Hunt's plain tomato sauce and add my own ground beef, garlic, Italian seasoning, a tablespoonful of sugar, and a ladle-full of pasta water. I would also add sautťed onions, but DH doesn't like them.

I know you didn't ask about slow cooker recipes, but this meat sauce is delicious!
