Canned Pasta Sauce [moved from Ontario board]
What's a good quality pasta sauce that doesn't taste sweet and readily available?
I've tried Classico, Ragu, CountrySelect, and Longos brand (spicy arabiatta sauce) and they were overly sweet.
The absolute best pasta sauce that I've found is the White Linen Collection 'All Natural' Marinara Sauce available at Costco. It's awesome. I have made my own for years, but this one is fantastic. Ingredients: "imported Italian tomatoes, Italian olive oil, fresh white onions, fresh garlic, fresh chopped basil, sea salt, spices".
Three times when I've been purchasing it at Costco, the checkout person has spontaneously commented about how much she loves this sauce (3 different cashiers at 2 different Costco stores). I think it's $4.59 for a large 1.18 L bottle. It's a product of Victoria Fine Foods, Brooklyn NY.
When I do buy a premade sauce - the best bet (for me) is to look for one with no added sugar.
I cannot remember the canned sauce I used to buy 15 years ago - but it was awesome, no added sugar. Trader joes has a decent marina sauce. And I've heard good things about the wolfing puck pasta sauces - no added sugar as well.
Cosco has a tomato pasta sauce called White Linen. It is really good but a little high in salt.
