Let me say that I can appreciate everyones own favorite taste profile in a sauce. My hat is off to the diehard fresh/steamed/organic/San Marizano non intensive sauce. I however prefer a hearty, overprocessed thick sauce with some type of "bite" whether it be citrus/vinegar or heat. My good neighbor turned me on to such a store bought sauce and I hope you all can find some to try.
I was super excited when the warden returned from the super grocery with a jar of the afore mentioned type of sauce. My brain nearly stopped functioning when I read the ingredients to myself. "Tomatoes, water, concentrated crushed tomatoes, sugar, salt, evoo, garlic, oregano, citric acid, spices, dehydrated garlic" I quickly opened the jar and passed it under the nose. Hmm, a light spaghetti sauce smell. Very disappointed, I reluctantly used the sauce on another dough project I am working on.
Katy bar the door, this is the stuff all good pizza's should be sauced with in my house. Heavy tomato flavor, perfectly spiced and I can't say enough good things about it. Please try it for yourself and see if you enjoy it as much as I do.
Yes, store brand marinara pasta sauce.
