A surefire way to beat the Sunday Scaries, no matter the season, is by indulging in a big bowl of pasta with tomato sauce. There's just something about the combination of carbs, parmesan, and sweet-tangy sauce that makes your insides feel warm and cozy. But sometimes you don't have the time or energy to whip up everything from scratch—and for those days, we have you covered. Read on below for our favorite store-bought sauces on the market.
The delicious sauces created by Steve Schirripa (a.k.a. Bobby Baccalieri on The Sopranos) are produced in small batches using fresh imported organic Italian plum tomatoes, vegetables, and spices. (Nick Sandow, who plays Joe Caputo on Orange is the New Black, is a fan!) Try a pack of three, which includes Marinara, Arrabbiata, and Tomato Basil.
