Mario Battali's Jar Sauce
So I decided to treat myself to the Iron Chef's NINE DOLLAR bottle of pasta sauce. I went with Tomato Basil. It's made from San Marzano tomatoes, and just a few fresh ingredients.
Was it worth $9?
Absolutely. It was hands-down, the single best jar sauce I've ever tasted. The bar has forever been set for jar sauce. It tasted like someone took ripe tomatoes from a garden, stewed them with love, and jarred them at their peak.
I've had sauces at restaurants not 1/8 as good as this was. A little hard to find, but you should try it!
Cool. I usually try to make my own sauces too, but it's nice to have a decent jar when time is an issue! I've seen 2-packs of Battali's sauce at Costco and was always kind of curious about it.
