KLG cooking mystery: What the heck is Jared sauce?

Sometimes, the live TV cues can be kind of hard to read. Kathie Lee was briefly confounded by one that introduced today's cooking segment that seemed to highlight a weird new ingredient.

"Jared sauce?" she asked right before the commercial.

"Jarred!" sighed Hoda (as in, in a jar). Ohhhh. Phew.

Cooking Light contributor Allison Fishman came by to show the ladies how to make healthy chicken cacciatore, which involves using prepared sauce from a jar. Thus jarred, not Jared, the guy from "My So Called Life." That wouldn't taste very good on pasta.

Julieanne Smolinski is a TODAY.com contributor. She makes her own Jared sauce.
