Finally, our favorite Rustichella d'Abruzzo tomato sauces are availble in a 24oz "family size." This new size comes in three fabulous flavors, Tomato & Basil, Arrabbiata and Olive. Rustichella d’Abruzzo has long been our favorite Italian jarred tomato sauce. Elegant, simple, clean – their sauces emphasize the quality of core ingredients (vine ripe, fresh Italian tomatoes and good extra virgin olive oil). Upon tasting the Tomato & Basil straight out of the jar one of our staff members exclaimed, "This is just like my Italian grandmother used to make."
We love the new larger format of these rich, velvety sauces – perfect for entertaining a hungry crowd. Whether it’s an impromptu potluck invitation, slumber party or family gathering, sometimes a big jar of good tomato sauce can save the day.
• Tomato and Basil: a perfect pairing for any pasta. In addition to tomato pulp (88%) and extra virgin olive oil, a whisper of basil, onion and carrot delivers complexity to its deep tomato flavor. Doubles as the perfect lasagna layer.
• Arrabbiata (Spicy): Meaning “angry” in Italian, this spicy tomato sauce gets a savory boost from crushed red chili peppers, garlic and onion. Best with hearty long cuts like bucatini, fettucine and chitarra.
• Olive: Whole black olives bring toothy texture and a delicate olive pungency to this delicious tomato sauce. We love it on pizza, or stirred throughout a casserole of whole wheat penne pasta.
