No pantry is complete without a couple of jars of spaghetti sauce. In fact, you probably have one standing by with a fair amount of dust on it in your own kitchen. This is a great backup for when you don't have time to make your own sauce or just want to prepare a simple and filling meal. Packaged spaghetti sauce has a good shelf life, so buy a few jars and stick them in the back of your pantry for a rainy day. There are a large variety of fresh-tasting sauce brands and flavors to choose from. Tomato basil, garlic and herb, traditional marinara and puttanesca sauces are great to have handy for any quick fix pasta dish.
