An unsettling thought occurred to me tonight as I was eating my usual bowl of pasta with Prego sauce. What if eating real Italian food ruins this staple for me? Granted, I put real parmesan cheese on top, so it's fairly authentic, but I have a nagging suspicion it might not stack up to fresh marinara with pasta made from scratch.
It's probably worth the risk, but I might need a new staple in the near future. Any ideas? Parameters are it must be cheap and easy to make, and you must be able to buy large quantities of it at Costco. And it can't expire quickly.
