A good basic bottled marinara sauce can make quick work of so many dinners—from spaghetti and meatballs to lasagna—plus it makes a great quick pizza or dipping sauce. Instead of creamy white sauces, choose tomato-based sauces, which are lower in calories and provide valuable nutrients. In our taste test of store-bought pasta sauces, we selected Rao’s Homemade Tomato and Basil Marinara Sauce as our top all-around pick, and our choice for the greatest value was Classico Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce. Both are available in major supermarket chains.
