Every great tomato sauce starts with its foundation- the tomato. To make our incredible sauces, we start by using imported whole peeled Italian tomatoes from the Puglia region of Italy. Next we only use the freshest and all natural ingredients from local farmers in the New York and Connecticut areas (when in season). We never add sugar, artificial flavorings, use any preservatives or concentrated tomato paste. Emulsifying fresh, quality ingredients with pure imported Italian olive oil in small batches yield a true fantastic homemade sauce. By doing this we are able to create flavors and textures that processed or manufactured food just can’t match!
Our best selling and most popular flavor! Since our family is from the Campania region of Italy, we have created a true southern Italian style tomato sauce that was used by my grandfather when he opened his restaurant in Queens Village, NY in 1955. We start by using imported whole peeled Italian tomatoes. Next we use fresh onions, fresh carrots and fresh celery (known as Italian soffritto - the three chief ingredients in southern Italian cooking). We peel and chop the onions, carrots and celery then sauté them in pure imported Italian olive oil along with freshly chopped garlic. Next we incorporate these fresh vegetables with our imported whole peeled Italian tomatoes and simmer in small kettles. Lastly we add fresh basil, black pepper and a touch of sea salt. The flavor profile makes this an authentic southern Italian sauce. Use with your favorite cut of pasta or even use as a great base for bolognese sauce or for lasagna. The possibilities are endless!
