Ina Garten Only Likes One Store-Bought Pasta Sauce & It’s on Sale at Costco for a Steal

If you know anything about Ina Garten, you know that she treasures her really good ingredients (especially her Nielsen-Massey vanilla) and just about everything she makes is made from scratch. But even the culinary queen herself needs to cut corners from time to time by opting for store-bought ingredients. When it comes to store-bought pasta sauce, there’s only one brand Ina trusts — and that’s Rao’s.

Garten revealed Rao’s is the only brand she trusts to buy from the store during an interview with Today. Of course, anything Ina chooses probably isn’t going to come cheap, and Rao’s is no exception. It can easily cost $8+ per jar at grocery stores, but this Ina Garten-approved sauce has been spotted at Costco locations and the price is almost unbelievable.

According to Costco Deals on Instagram, Rao’s homemade marinara sauce is for sale at Costco, and a two-pack will only cost you $8.39.

It’s not clear if this is only available in select stores or all stores, but it’s definitely worth running to your nearest warehouse and checking because that price is truly unbeatable. It also doesn’t appear on Costco’s website so for now, it seems to be an in-store-only deal.

If you’re still not convinced that it’s a deal worth taking advantage of, just look at what a two-pack of the same Rao’s Marinara will cost you on Amazon.

Although if you factor in the cost of a Costco membership, I guess $22.45 isn’t too bad considering it gets delivered directly to your door.

If you really want to take your cooking to an Ina Garten-level, we recommend you use this Rao’s sauce in her penne arrabbiata recipe or her orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage
