My mom is not Italian but she has a special secret family recipe for spaghetti sauce. It is very complicated and takes 2 – 3 hours to prepare it. I love her spaghetti sauce, but for most nights when I want to have spaghetti for dinner I jut open a jar of Prego spaghetti sauce.
I’ve tried a lot of different sauces, including Ragu, Newman’s Own and Bertolli. I have even tried the generic store brands. I just always seem to gravitate back to the Prego sauce and I dislike the Ragu so much that I would rather eat noodles with just olive oil and parmesan cheese than to ruin good pasta with Ragu sauce on it. There is something about the Ragu taste that reminds me of the canned chef Boyardi raviloli and beefaroni that you feed children. I can’t stand the taste of those!
