I think we can all agree homemade is best, but not always possible! Homemade spaghetti sauce from scratch is actually one of those things that’s really not hard to make, but it can take a little time to simmer before all the flavors really come together. So, as a result, I do still buy store bought spaghetti sauce to have on hand. It’s one of my go-to weeknight meals when I don’t have something planned or am short on time.
But just because you’re using a jarred sauce doesn’t mean you can’t kick things up a notch by adding some of your own fresh veggies and flavors (as pictured below). So I thought I’d share exactly how I do just that almost every time I pull out a pre-made jar of sauce for a quick weeknight meal! And as with anything packaged you want to look for a brand that only uses ingredients you would cook with at home and ideally one that doesn’t contain any added, refined sugar (which sadly is not always easy to do).
