    It's better to make pasta sauces from scratch, try using Passata or chopped tomatoes both free foods as your base, the jar sauces tend to be quite high in syns.

    Jar sauces are very high in syns and most jars/packets contain quite a lot of sugar.

    Best making your own sauces when you have time and then just freezing portions to use when you need to make something quickly.

    Passata, chopped tinned toms, and a variety of veg make superb sauces and you can adjust the taste to make it spicy or plain.

    I agree with Donnie - use a passata base and add to it whatever you fancy. I throw in mushrooms, onions, syn in some bacon if I fancy it and peppers depending if we have any in.

    If you ever do have the time, making a tomato and red pepper base is easy and takes no time at all (I tend to make a batch in 20mins) and it's good as a soup or thicken it as a base for pasta sauce.

    Good luckx

    It really takes no time at all to make a sauce!
    chop some onion, peppers, garlic, carrot, whatever you like - soften in fry light (5 mins) add a tin of toms or jar/packet of passata, a tsp of sweetener and simmer for 10 mins. Leave chunky or blitz. My daughter has this blitzed and we have it chunky.
    Syn free!! If you make a huge batch with double/triple quantities you can freeze it.

    As an example though, dolmio light bolognaise sauce is 12 1/2 syns for a 750g jar.

    Agree make your own. If you set an half an hour aside to make a huge batch of sauce then freeze them in portions you will definately be doing yourself a favour. Jars/packets are realy high in syns and just not worth it. If you make a relitavely plain sauce to freeze, you can then add different herbs and spices to them when defrosted to vary the taste. Passatta is another great way to make sauces as its quick, easy and free. just cut the top off the box and away you go, just as easy as opening a jar. Happy cooking. xx

    It is easy to make your own but I'm a tad lazy and use ragu. A whole jar of Tesco's tomato pasta sauce is only 6.5 syns but I find a quarter of the jar is enough for a large bowl of pasta.
