Spaghetti Sauce From a jar?

What is your favorite from a jar? We just had one tonight that was too sweet. It was the store brand. I never know which one to pick. Any suggestions for my next spaghetti dinner?
Thanks so much.

We like Newman's Own and Bertoli. My husband used to buy ragu because he didn't know any better. We still make our own but for a quick dinner when neither of us feel like cooking, Newman's and Bertoli aren't half bad! We did not like Classico or Prego either.

I like the Newman's Own. The one I get is Garlic and ?---Old age is hard. It's garlic with something else.

Hunt's can

Yes - the cheap one! I've tried so many of the others, but my kids (teenagers) never like them as much as the tall can of Hunt's original. Can't beat the price - $1.00!

I will admit that I add some garlic powder, dried onions, dried basil, and pepper.

I do love Bertolli for the alfredo sauce - and they love it, too!

Same as vateacher - Newman's Own or Bertoli. I buy either of them when there's a good sale, so I always have some on hand. Classico is okay, but I don't like Prego and I really dislike Ragu.

I buy whatever is on sale... add oregano and garlic powder, sometimes some salt and pepper and it's delicious! :-)

I make my own on occasion or choose the brands that have the least amount of sugar. Most brands have too much sugar. I think Bertolis has an acceptable amount. Read the labels carefully.

I like Prego, but I brown my own meat for it and add a little garlic salt, basil and 2 tablespoons of Greek salad dressing - YUM!

We use Prego (Italian sausage flavor). I add browned ground beef and we top it with parmesan cheese.

I usually buy Hunt's Four Cheese, but read in Consumer's Report that Giada's spaghetti sauce, sold at Target, is rated as the best. I tried it last week, and it was very good, but the cost is over $3 a jar.

Prego

We like Prego--Traditional, meat sauce, or chunky with vegetables--because it is not sweet. Of course, we add hamburger, onion, parsley flakes, extra tomato sauce, and a little oregano too.

We like Wal-Mart's brand pretty well. I sometimes add things to it, but I can eat it from the jar.

Ragu (traditional) I will eat any jarred or homemade sauce, but Mr. W. only likes ragu. Ds and I like it too.

We use the Kirkland (Costco) brand. It tastes like fresh spaghetti sauce, smashed up tomatoes with great spices that you can taste. We also use Hunts (comes in a can) but I don't like it as well as the Costco kind.

We usually use Ragu, but we like to try all of the different varieties. My recent favorite was sweet basil tomato. I like to add my own meat or meatballs, and I always put fresh garlic in my noodle water.

I used prego forever, but now we use the Francesco Rinaldi sweet and tasty tomato. I usually add a bit of italian seasoning and some grated parm/romano. I always get compliments whenever i serve it to company. I use it for my crock pot lasagna also.

We've recently been using the Rinaldi traditional flavor. DH usually adds a little bit of sugar (I don't like it too sweet either), some basil, oregano, and red pepper flake.

We also like the Newman's Own tomato & basil.

For the past 2+ years I've been making the sauce; however, we use to buy Prego - Various versions it - Chunky Vegetable (I think that's what it is called). We have used other flavors of Prego and would add some extra things to it - adding mushrooms is my favorite

I love Ragu either traditional or mushroom. It's delicious and the reason I don't bother making homemade. Also Newman's is good too.

Whatever I get, I put it in the crock pot for hours like I would homemade.....it gives it a rich, deeper flavor.

We always get whatever is cheapest but always choose the one that says "traditional." We seem to like that flavor best. Usually a can that costs $1 is what we get. I guess we are not that picky.
