Review: The jar of double Cheddar sauce -- nestled on the shelf amid a sea of jarred spaghetti sauces -- seemed an easy route to a bountiful macaroni and cheese dinner. Easy it was, but it lacked flavor. Disappointed after trying the baked macaroni and cheese casserole recipe on the jar, I tried mixing a generous amount of the Ragu sauce with drained, hot macaroni. Still no dice, despite the double Cheddar, Parmesan and Romano cheeses in the thick sauce. Even my 7-year-old macaroni maniac found it lackluster. Maybe Ragu should tweak the recipe.
