I found this in a "Newman's Own" ad in the September 2009 edition of SELF magazine and it sounded so good and easy I wanted to make sure I didn't lose it! I'm sure you could use whatever brand of jarred pasta sauce you wanted...

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 cup chopped white onion

To be honest here I just made the sauce and purchased the ravioli so I probably cannot give stars. This recipe made me try out something new and that was the Paul Newman Sauce which was yummy indeed and further enhanced by adding the other ingredients and a handful of homegrown herbs - it really was a thoroughly enjoyable meal
