1. Carluccio's Cuttlefish Ink Sauce


This tomato sauce with wine and cuttlefish ink adds a sea tang and gives your pasta a deep black hue. It's also good for risottos.

2. Marks and Spencer Fresh Green Pesto


Get yourself over to the fridge counter at M&S, where you'll find this beauty, which knocks the socks off versions in jars.

3. Zest Oregano and Basil Sauce

£15.48 for 6,

This rich-tasting, full-flavoured sauce is made with fresh garlic and herbs and is free from anything artificial.

4. Don Antonio Vodka Pasta Sauce


Heat a little olive oil and fry some finely sliced onions and pancetta before adding a jar of this, followed by cream.

5. Seggiano Artichoke Ricotta Pasta Sauce


Unusual, but worth the gamble. A fantastic flavour combination, as well as being as good as fresh and extremely moreish.

6. Owen Potts Carbonara


Made with thick double cream, white wine and parmesan, just add pancetta or smoked bacon – or smoked salmon or asparagus for a contemporary twist.

7. Tideford Ragu


Organic, heart-warming, tasty. Great for pretending you made it yourself, it's excellent on its own, but is also good as a lasagne filling or for shepherd's pie.

8. Made By Bob Puttanesca


Made from tomatoes, black olives, capers, anchovies, onions, garlic and herbs. If your mouth isn't watering yet, it certainly will be when you taste this.

9. David Oliver Rabbit with British cider and sage


Initially only sold in local farm shops, David Oliver's fresh pasta sauces proved such a hit they're going national from this month.

10. Mr Organics Tomato


Put a bit of fire in your belly with this sauce from the whizzkids at Mr Organic, who have produced this take on a spicy classic.
