Great quiz....I took Italian in college and I love Italian food, but some of the more regional sauces threw me off. All of them sound super tasty!!

10/10. Doesn't help my waist line that I am living in Chicago and so many excellent Italian restaurants.

Ah, got the Diavolo one wrong. My family makes it very similar to the ingredients listed here. And my grandma never made alfredo sauce; said it really wasn't Italian, so I always thought it was made with lots of cream. My grandma would be pretty proud tho!!!

9/10, I didn't know that traditional alfredo sauce isn't made with cream. I love pasta sauces!

<3 pasta! But I'm seriously shocked that I managed to get 7/10 right since I usually stick to alfredo, pesto and vodka sauces :-)

Sadly for my waistline, pasta sauces are one topic I know well.
