I think Lloyd Grossman's tomato and roasted garlic is the nicest one I've found so far but have you found a really yummy one?

Most I have tried are really bad, but I agree Lloyds are good: I like the chilli one. I know it is not quite answer to your thread - but I often opt for a good pesto instead.

I think Lloyd's are too oily. I love the M&S tomato and garlic one!

Gordon Ramsey's with red wine, by a country mile. But, since I started doing my own, mine is better. Let me know if you would like the recipe.

Lloyds chilli one mmm Oh and not quite a sauce but Pataks curry paste is the best..

HappyGirlNow Fri 17-May-13 23:30:32

heavenlyYoni I'd like the recipe please grin

Oops missed pasta sauce [blush[

Loyd's for us here too.

Yes I like Lloyds chilli one too but usually make my own.

Cheap carton of passata for 29p, chopped onion and garlic fried, add some herbs (basil for us) maybe some red pepper and mushroom? Pour on passata and simmer for 10 mins. Add whatever you like tbh.

I used to buy them for very quick meals but they leaped up in price so much that it put me off.

Sacla olive and tomato.

I do enjoy the homepride tuna pasta bake one grin

I actually really like the lidl's ones, chunky vegetable is the best

Thank you all very much for your tips. I do like the Lloyd G tomato and red wine one a lot too but found not that many shops stock it anymore. I'm going to keep a look out for some of the others. in our house, pasta and sauce and frozen garlic bread is the can't be arsed TV dinner, so I don't think I'll be making my own sauce regularly but I'll try it one day.

I third Seeds of Change they are delicious.

MaryMotherOfCheeses I found them for 99p in my local B&M the other week. I hoard them whenever I see them on offer.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Fri 17-May-13 23:56:26

Ooh! Not sure we have B&M here, but I'll keep my eyes open.

Juney I'll 2nd the tuna pasta bake mix! smile

loyds tomato & basil - the original and the best smile

Boys are partial to the sacla tomato & marscapone stir in one too - that ones good 'cos you can keep it for a couple of weeks after opening it.

Tuna pasta bake???

Now that IS wrong, come on.

mamalovesmojitos Sat 18-May-13 00:46:30

Seeds of change. Really good. Sacla comes second.

MortifiedAdams Sat 18-May-13 00:48:31

Homepride Creamy Tomato. Yum.

Is a fresh tub cheating? Waitrose Italian bean and pancetta is delicious
