HOW TO FIND THE BEST PASTA TOPPERS

ShareThis

Mushroom, marinara, or meat? Picking a pasta sauce used to be easy. Today, the Three M’s are still around, but you can also find jars of Butternut Squash, Fontina & Asiago, and Sicilian Olive and Wild Caper, among others. The good news: old standbys like Ragú and Prego are yielding shelf space to sauces from upscale brands (like Cucina Antica and Dell’Amore) and celebrity chefs and restaurants (like Mario Batali and Rao’s), which use premium ingredients and cut the salt without sacrificing even a smidgen of flavor.
