Best jar versions of stuff you should probably make yourself but you can't be arsed to sometimes

This is good, Bo’s have started doing jars of curry sauce with a spice mix to cook the protein in, very good if you simply can’t be arsed of an evening:

Gonna have pasta and meatballs tonight but I cannot be arsed to knock up a sauce, what is the best jar?

A genuine fan of Dolmio bolognese sauce. I know it’s slightly nicer if you make it from scratch, but for the price and convenience this is absolutely fine and indeed a nice meal.

We don’t make our own miso paste, so buy something like this instead.

Why?

‘protein’ used in this sort of context irks me a lot, just thought you ought to know.

good luck with the rest of the thread!

There is no decent widely-available jarred green pesto, is there?

In terms of the OP the Lloyd Grossman tomato and chilli sauce is decent and easy to find

Yet to have a jar of disappointing pesto…is it a case of once you’ve made it yourself, there’s no going back?

Who is your favourite one out of the Dolmio puppets?

I don’t think it is, sadly.

^yep. Should never had bothered.

All jarred pesto just tastes way too vinegary.
