Mr Minx loves to make (and eat) spaghetti and meatballs, and when he doesn't have the time to put together a home-made sauce, he has to resort to the jarred variety. I'm particular about my sauce - it must cling to the pasta and coat it well. I hate sauce that's water and chunks; I like chunky sauce, but its liquid component must be thick.
We found a sauce called Mid's at Wegman's the other day. It's perfect. I see from the Web site that the primary tomato product is tomato paste. Bingo! And that's going to be what I use in my homemade sauce from now on.
