For Jarred Pasta Sauce, One Brand Stands Above The Rest
Food Network chef Ina Garten agrees that Rao's Marinara Sauce is the best jarred pasta sauce, calling it fantastic, versatile, and perfect for pasta and lasagna. The sauce contains tomatoes, olive oil, basil, onions, garlic, salt, black pepper, and oregano, and its distinct balanced flavor has earned a perfect 5-star rating on Amazon.

Bon Appétit noted that in comparison to other popular brands, "Rao's sits on an entirely different plane" because it is made from quality ingredients. According to the brand's website, Rao's Marinara Sauce comes in various sizes, with prices ranging from $5.99 for the 15.5-ounce jar to $9.99 for 32 ounces.

Rao's website says a half-cup serving of its marinara sauce has 100 calories with 7 grams of fat, 420 mg of sodium, 4 grams of sugar, and no added sugar. Although it has higher nutritional content than its competitors like Ragu, Rao uses olive oil and has no added preservatives.
