My sister made lasagna with jarred sauce

My dad texted us what he was having for dinner--chicken, plain quinoa, and a salad with just balsamic vinegar. He is working really hard to lose weight. My sister's response? "LOL We had lasagna." I replied with "I want lasagna" and she said "I used jarred sauce. You must be appalled." That made me laugh out loud for real. In my Italian family we make our sauce from scratch and sometimes even our pasta! She then followed up with "in my defense it was a $5 jar of sauce and not Prego". I was dying. My father said that he was disappointed in her but I know he was just joking. She has 2 young kids and doesn't have the luxury of time to make homemade sauce and then layer a lasagna and THEN bake it. It is just funny to me that we are joking about jarred tomato sauce. Most people buy it in the jar. My ex bought a bunch of $1 jars of sauce and lived to regret it. I make my own 99% of the time. My dad does too. My sister used to but she just doesn't have the time these days.

The only people I know that don't ocassionally use jarred sauce are those that have a big vegetable garden and can their own tomatoes and make sauce from that. Most people don't have time for that..or the luxury to grow their own garden.
