Where to buy Chef Boyardee type sauce

The pasta sauce in chef boyardee tastes so much better than the sauce you get in the pasta sauce aisle at the grocery store. Is there a name for this sauce?

I noticed some microwave pasta meals have it too. It tastes 100x better than regular pasta sauce at the grocery store. Is there no way to buy something similar to this sauce or is it just under a name I am not familiar with?

Is that weird?
I never liked pasta sauce from the grocery store ever since I was a kid. It has a really unpleasant taste, it’s bitter. There’s another unpleasant taste to it as well.

It’s not there in Chef Boyardee or microwave dinners. It’s not there at restaurants either. I just thought it’d be easier to explain with grocery store items since less people would have tried specific menu items at restaurants.

If you find most grocery store sauces bitter, try a sauce made with San Marzano D.O.P. tomatoes.

I'll bet you'll like it and won't find it bitter.

The Chef Boyardee sauce has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it that will sweeten the sauce and counteract the bitterness. It also has carrots in it which will mellow the tomato sauce.

Just buy ordinary pasta sauce and add a table spoon of water and a couple tablespoons of salt.
Yes I said Tablespoons, because chef Boyardee tastes like brine.
