For jarred spaghetti sauce users...

Ragu or Prego? Or any other brand?
I am Ragu all the way, have been for YEARS!! And please, if you don't use it, don't answer this question to tell me you always make your own sauce, I don't have time for that and probably never will!
Just curious. Thanks!

  • I too am brand specific about certian things and this is one; we also are a Ragu family; but I don't use it straight out of the jar...I'll get either the plain or garlic sauce and then add my own meat and seasonings and stewed tomatoes etc to make it more "home-y"

  • I use whatever is cheapest, but like beachmama, I just get plain sauce and add spices and other things. When you buy plain, they are all basically the same.

  • Yes, I have to add to it also, but I like it because it doesn't have the sweetness that other sauces do.

  • I like Prego!

  • I do Prego, or whatever one is $1.00 that week. I get the mushroom one, add meat and stewed tomatoes and seasoning. Yum.

  • I use what ever is on sale then throw in fried chopped meat. There aren't enough hours in the day for me to make my own. Personally the walmart sauce is pretty good to us but I'll also use prego or ragu. When they are on sale I stock up. I just won't use the can ones like Hunts that is gross!

  • Definitley Ragu. Prego is too sweet..I usually will add chopped garlic and dried basil to the sauce.

  • Prego all the way.

  • I am very picky about my sauce, I grew up with homemade sauce. I use Prego once in a while. Ragu tends to be too sweet. I have used the sauce in a can, I think Campells. I really like Newman's Own or Bertolli.
