Hi @momtochloe Smiley Happy

 

I have not seen the Italian Sausage sauce in my supermarket in a while.  Rao's is delicious!! 


Oh goodness @dmod nj I just posted that I am no longer loving their other varieties in a previous post.  I tried their garden vegetable a few weeks ago and was very disappointed (even though I have tried most of their varieties previously).  It just didn't have the same, rich flavor that I so loved when I first started purchasing their products. Smiley Sad


@momtochloe oops, sorry, I didn't see your post.  I'm sorry to hear that the quality is not the same.   I haven't bought it in a while, but I will have to try it soon.

 

I loved the prosciutto and onion sauce. That was discontinued too. Smiley Sad


@dmod nj ARGH and the angst continues . . . they had a prosciutto and onion sauce? . . . and I missed it? . . . GAH! . . . . Smiley Sad


LOL Yep, it was delish, @momtochloe.   I'm sorry you missed it.

 

When I don't make/use my own roasted peppers, Rao's roasted peppers with pine nuts and raisins are the best...... the peppers are soft and tasty!! 

 

I usually roast my own peppers during the summer. I freeze them for use during the winter. When I run out of my own, Rao's is my go to.

Ok, first off I thank you for my first laugh out loud moment of the day @dmod nj . . . make my own roasted peppers? . . . yeah, let's just say I have always counted on those jars for that (and yes I am ashamed) . . . and what are these pine nuts and raisins you speak of? . . . I am intrigued . . . do they come in a jar?

LOL Happy to make you lol! LOL   I like to cook most days.

 

  Most of the brands of jarred peppers, I tried, I didn't like. The peppers were too crunchy. The Rao's peppers are soft, the way I make them. lol  I put the peppers in the oven.....8 at a time....roast them, put them in a bag to steam the skin off, peel and freeze! Easy peasy!

 

I make my own sauce too.  I make a HUGE pot........12 quarts....of sauce at a time. I freeze it and use it until it runs out.   When it does, I pull out a jar of Rao's. lol  

 

I'm not a big pasta/sauce lover.  I know, what kind of Italian American am I???? lol    I make the sauce for my family.   

 

Experiment until you get your mom's recipe down the way you like it.  If your experiments are horrible.....................there is always take out. lol   I wish you luck. 

 

If you need any help, give me a shout out. I'll see what I can do to help you.

Re: Ina Garten and David's favorite store bought red sauce.

@dmod nj, thank you for the infomation on the eggplant sauce. I could have sworn I checked their site several months back and it wasn't on there. Glad to know I have a source. I will now go ahead and use the last jar I have that I've been hoarding. Ha!

 

 

Thanks again.

Re: Ina Garten and David's favorite store bought red sauce.

I get a roasted pepper in Publix that's sweet, and soft, and sooooo good.  I'm out of them right now (I'm hoping for a BOGO soon), so I can't give you the name, but it begins with an M, and they come in a tall, narrow jat with a red lid.
