Grandma would whack me with the wooden spoon if she knew I made pasta with jarred sauce. HowEVER, she'd make one exception...
As you may already know, I'm a fan of Serafina Broadway, the famous Italian eatery in Midtown Manhattan. If you've never been there, I feel bad for you. Luckily enough, you can get your paws on a few jars of the same lip-smacking pasta sauce they serve at these fine Serafina restaurants.
The sauces sell for at least $10 a jar on the west coast. Sign up for Behind the Burner and get THREE jars for $19.99. Trust me. It IS a big freakin' deal:
Mix it with cooked pasta on your stovetop, mop it up in your plate with fresh bread or sneak a finger-lick when no one's looking (I didn't say I do that...). Your friends will think you're the savviest saucier in town.
Economically challenged as I am, I do allow myself a minor splurge once in a while. This one is definitely worth it.
Yum is the Word. Period.
