Every Italian family has their own special recipe for pasta sauce. But no matter what you say, my father's was the best—passed down from generations who immigrated to American from Italy.
When we woke up on many a weekend, he already had a large pot simmering on the stove…and did we ever love that smell which filled every room in our home!
Here's a family recipe for some tasty pasta sauce:

The taste tests are in and celebrity-branded food…is just okay.
At least, that's what a new Consumer Reports taste test of 26 celebrity-branded food products says, majority of which tested comparably to much cheaper products from major companies like Kraft.
With the price increase and famous face, we expect the best, but celebrity-endorsed pasta sauce the likes of Emeril Lagasse or Paul Newman rated average on a scale from "Poor" to "Excellent".
Wolfgang Puck's minestrone soup tested as "good" (still behind "very good"), but to the chef's credit, his Tomato Basil Soup got an "excellent" rating and was called, "A soup to sip and savor."
Next time you're at Target and looking for tomato sauce, Giada De Laurentiis' tomato basil sauce is apparently an "excellent" choice and praised for its "buttery richness."
