Making homemade pasta sauce is an experience.  I will not lie to you - it takes time.  If all you want is a quick sauce to cover your weeknight noodles, go with Prego. It will undeniably save you hours.  But if you want to spend an afternoon dancing around in a tomato-splattered apron, sipping red wine, and singing "Hey mambo, mambo Italianoooo," go the authentic route.  Not only will you feel like an absolute boss magically turning tomatoes from your garden into creamy sauce, you will have the unique pleasure of tasting a simmering spoonful right from the pot and getting goosebumps because it tastes so good.
