crap, where were you people before i ate dinner!! now, im hungry again. ...
midnight isnt too absurd for a pasta party is it? even if its a second dinner? haha.
i think my fave jarred pasta sauce is from barilla, mushroom and garlic.
but i agree, making your own sauce is really easy...you are basically just starting out w/ canned tomatoes of some sort and adding your own veggies, spices, etc.
also, try whirring up roasted red pepper to use as a sauce (add spices, herbs, garlic, etc) or pesto (oliive oil, pinenuts, basil pureed) over your pasta for a change. good stuff!
