ISO Best Pasta Sauce commonly available in Toronto
Can't always whip up a pasta sauce due to time pressures - what is the best prepared pasta sauce available commonly in the GTA? Ideally someone will think of a brand many supermarlets carry but that tastes like home-made, with good garlic or basil overtones and not too much sugar, and at a reasonable price ....Does Costco carry any made for it ?
I know, asking the impossible!
Thanks in advance for your input!
I would say to look for Rao's...have heard very positive reviews about the new Loblaws Black label sauce as well but haven't tried it. If these aren't available I would go to the fresh food area and look for a store made 'homemade' sauce that every supermarket seems to sell.

I rarely buy pasta sauce as I prefer to make my own from organic tomatoes. However Costco (Billy Bishop Way is where I went) right now has 3 jars of Newman's Own Pasta Sauce (All Natural, whatever that means) on sale for $2 off the regular $5.99 price, so $3.99 per for 3 645ml jars. You get 2 Marinara and 1 Sockarooni ('Peppers, Spice and the Whole Shebang' the label says). So at $1.33 a jar and in glass jars, not cans nonetheless, and all profits going to charity I was lured in.
I tried the Sockarooni in a lasagne I made last night and it was absolutely delicious. I don't think this value can be beat anywhere right now.
