From the blogger: "Never get stuck with dry pasta again! Try these six tips to stretch jarred pasta sauce to cover a pound of pasta and taste even better than out of the jar! Ever look at how many servings are in a jar of pasta sauce versus how many servings are in a pound of pasta? They’re not remotely the same. Jarred sauce usually has 5 to 6 servings per container. Pasta is usually sold by the pound, which serves 8. If you do the math, it will take 8 jars of pasta sauce and 5 pounds of pasta to get equal serving sizes. What family needs to make that much pasta for a regular family meal? 

Thankfully, I’ve found a few tricks that I like to use to not only stretch that jar of sauce but to make it taste infinitely better than it does straight out of the jar! Next time you make pasta for your family, try one or more of these tricks and see how much better your sauce really is (and don’t worry whether or not you’ve got enough sauce to cover that pound of pasta)."
