There's absolutely no shame in using jarred pasta sauce in your dishes. Pasta sauces on the supermarket shelves range from simple and inexpensive to exotic and pricey; it just depends on your needs.

Use light or fat-free pasta sauce to save on calories, sodium, and fat in rich dishes like this manicotti.
