Ready-made sauces, from marinara to Alfredo, add quick flavor to Italian favorites like lasagna, baked ziti, and more. The best news? It’ll taste like it’s been simmering on the stove all day.

Extra-Easy Lasagna

6 uncooked lasagna noodles

1 (15-oz.) container ricotta cheese

2. Spread one-third of meat sauce in a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish; layer with 3 noodles and half each of ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese. (The ricotta cheese layers will be thin.) Repeat procedure; spread remaining one-third of meat sauce over mozzarella cheese. Slowly pour ¼ cup hot water around inside edge of dish. Tightly cover baking dish with 2 layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

Cut 2 (2¼-pound) spaghetti squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Bake squash, cut sides down, on a lightly greased baking sheet at 400° for 1 hour. Cool 10 minutes. Combine 2 pounds ground chicken; 4 green onions, chopped; 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley; 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese; and 2 teaspoons salt. Shape into 24 (2-inch) balls. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Scrape inside of squash to remove spaghetti-like strands (about 6 cups). Cover and chill squash and meatballs up to 24 hours. Cook 2 minced garlic cloves in 2 tablespoons hot olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high, stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Add 1 (24-ounce) jar tomato-basil pasta sauce, 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, and meatballs; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Microwave squash, covered with plastic wrap, at HIGH 3 minutes. Stir ½ cup chopped fresh basil into sauce; serve over squash. Top with Parmesan cheese.

Quick and Easy Spaghetti Bolognese

A rich and seasoned meat sauce doesn’t require a full day of stirring at the stove—all you need is 25 minutes. We love the robust flavor of Italian sausage in this chunky tomato sauce, but you can substitute ground beef or pork too.

1 lb. sweet Italian sausage, casings removed

½ cup chopped sweet onion

½ tsp. kosher salt

¼ tsp. black pepper

1 (16-oz.) pkg. spaghetti or linguine noodles

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil

2. Stir in pasta sauce, sugar, salt, and black pepper; bring mixture to a boil over medium-high. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes.

3. Cook pasta according to package directions, reserving ½ cup cooking water. Stir chopped basil into meat sauce. Stir in up to ½ cup reserved cooking water, adding ¼ cup at a time, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Serve sauce over cooked spaghetti. Garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired.
