Convenient Food: Jarred Pasta Sauce

1. Jarred Pasta Sauce

A good basic bottled marinara sauce can make quick work of so many dinners—from spaghetti and meatballs to lasagna—plus it makes a great quick pizza or dipping sauce. Instead of creamy white sauces, choose tomato-based sauces, which are lower in calories and provide valuable nutrients. In our taste test of store-bought pasta sauces, we selected Rao’s Homemade Tomato and Basil Marinara Sauce as our top all around pick, and our choice for the greatest value was Classico Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce. Both are available in major supermarket chains.
