What do you prefer? Do you have a particular brand you buy or whatever is on sale? Do you ever make your own or do you doctor your jarred sauce by adding veggies, herbs and spices to it?

My husband buys the sauce. 

Depending on what brand he gets will decide if I doctor it up or not. 

I open the jar, and smell the sauce first, then taste it. If I feel that it needs anything I add it. 

There are times when I will make it from scratch as well. It depends on if I have the time to do so. Meaning that I have the time to allow it to simmer for as long as I like it to simmer before using it.

I make my own gravy.  I'm not allowed to use jarred sauce because according to my mother, "It will cause all of our deceased relatives to roll over in their graves and I wouldn't want that on my hands"

I prefer RAGU meat sauce. Sometimes we'll add cubed bell peppers & onions to it to make it more chunky.

 Usually make my own, but I love Paul Newman's Sockaroonie sauce for a quick meal. Even DH liked it, and he's Italian.

Brand had never mattered to us. We just buy whatever flavor sounds good at the time, usually something with garlic, mushrooms or cheese. My cousin just mentioned a few weeks ago making her own from scratch. Can't wait to try it!

Oh it so much better homemade! I don't always make homemade because I don't always have all the ingredients on hand. Also, I need time for it to simmer all day in the crockpot since it has so much flavor that way! But when I do make it, I make a large batch so I can freeze it.
