    Prego

    But, meh, most canned sauces don't have enough filling or taste to them. So to add more taste, my family usually adds a lot more ground meat/mushroom/onion to the sauce.

    But if I could make my own sauce, I would.

    It's the main ingredient in penne alla vodka (though I prefer it on linguine or that whole-wheat corkscrew shaped pasta, I'm not a big fan of penne), and indeed was invented in Italy. It's like pink sauce.

    never heard of vodka pasta sauce, but sounds good
    You put ketchup and cheese spread in your pasta sauce? Remind me to not eat at your house.

    Mmm, apparently it may have been invented in Italy but it mostly gained popularity in the US. Anyway, gonna try it once.

    This is absolutely, absolutely disgusting. Pesto + tomato + cheese spread + ketchup, ouch. Plus, acting as if emmental and parmesan are easily interchangeable (!!!!). You should be imprisoned.

    i only put very little ketchup and i think the cheese spread we have in finland is very different from what you have in usa. its actually pretty basic cooking ingredient

    Classico's Four Cheese FTW! I add olive oil/spices to doctor it up, then let simmer for at least an hour.

    That looks pretty good. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

    Yeah classico is decent. I only buy the mushroom alfredo one since I don't really like tomato-based sauces.

    Ha ha! This thread reminds me of one of my favorite TED talks by Malcom Gladwell called "Choice, happiness and spaghetti sauce."

    You can watch it by clicking here: http://www.ted.com/talks/malcolm_gla...tti_sauce.html

    (The best spaghetti sauces are homemade. But if you're going for the canned route, my favorite is Classico Four Cheese Sauce.)

    95% of the time I'll use homemade sauce because it's not hard and I make enough to freeze and last a few months. But that said, I like Cento sauces, especially the arrabbiata. They have San Marzano tomatoes and no weird ingredients.
