Going to the supermarket always feels a bit bewildering. Which label should I choose? The generic brand is cheaper, but is it worse? I really want to go for the colorful label, but is that how they get you?
I wanted an answer! And so I began a quest into the difference between storebought brands with one of the most treasured and important recipes in my cooking repetoire: Nonna’s pasta sauce (follow link for recipe). That’s right, my late Nonna was born in Italy and passed down the most delicious pasta sauce in history to my family. It’s similar to a bolognese sauce but different (my grandma was from Lucca, not Bologna), so the only real name for it is Nonna’s pasta sauce.
