San Marzano tomatoes are the most celebrated tomatoes in the world and these are certified DOP: Denominazione d' Origine Protetta, in English this translates to Protected Designation of Origin. This certification is a guarantee that these tomatoes originate from the small town of San Marzano sul Sarno, near Naples, Italy, and were grown in volcanic soil in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. They are remarkable for their intense rich taste, low percentage of liquid and their rich meaty flesh. These tomatoes are the gold standard for Italian sauces and pizza.
This organic Italian tomato puree is the a perfect way to create a quick sauce or can be simmered down for a slow cooked sauce as well, and this is only the beginning. This glass jarred puree, in a resealable jar, is ideal for adding to stews, soups and marinates as well. Our puree is imported directly by our family from southern Italy. It is considered one of the finest tomato purees available.
This robust sauce is made in small batches and is a rich blend of the finest California tomatoes, olive oil, and fresh garlic. These all-natural ingredients are expertly blended in perfect proportions resulting in a balanced, flavorful tomato sauce. It is made without sugar or corn syrup.
Ready to serve right directly from the jar, the ideal way to heat this sauce is in a bain marie pan which helps avoid scorching or unnecessary moisture loss which can concentrate flavors. We also encourage you to make this sauce your own by adding your favorite sautéed vegetables, meats, or simple tomato puree for a lighter, personalized taste.
There are so many reasons to love Genoa but in matters of sauce their Pesto Genovese personifies the genius of the Italian kitchen: delicious, fresh, elegant and with great simplicity. This sauce is made using certified-D.O.P.*basil from Liguria where pesto was invented! Unbelievably fresh tasting.
IT IS NOT RECOMMEND TO PRE-HEAT THIS SAUCE. It is already fully cooked. The concentrated yet delicate taste will be altered in pre-heating. It is at its very best when poured directly from the jar-- unheated-- on hot, steaming, strained pasta. Yet, it can also be an ideal bruschetta topping or meat-relish. If you feel you must preheat, a ban marie pan is the safest option. Each jar is sufficient for one pound of pasta. In the Italian style, the pasta is coated in sauce, and not drowning in it.
You can improvise an add fresh sautéed vegetables or sautéed meat—but we recommend to first try it alone!
