I don't care how good the jar of sauce you begin with is...you ALWAYS doctor things up. Fresh garlic sauteed in olive oil. Maybe add cooked lentils. Or white beans or garbanzo beans. Add sun dried tomatoes and some chicken stock. Sauteed peppers. Sauteed onions. Bacon bits. A spoonful of sugar. A can of diced tomatoes or fresh tomatoes. A pat of butter w/a splash of heavy cream. White wine. Red wine. And always fresh herbs. It is not okay to serve sauce out of a jar to people you love.
Unless of course you do not have the means to add a little of this or a little of that.
