Frequently Asked Questions:

What is vodka sauce?

Vodka Sauce is an Italian-American pasta sauce that combines Italian tomatoes with nutty Italian cheeses (like Pecorino Romano cheese or Parmesan) and fresh cream. Some vodka sauces include fresh herbs or vegetables to add another dimension to its flavor. The addition of vodka is to bring out the flavors of the tomato. The resulting tomato sauce is rich and creamy with that lovable tangy tomato bite. Sometimes this sauce is referred to as “pink sauce,” because the cream lightens the red of the tomato.

What does pomodoro fresco mean?

Pomodoro Fresco means “fresh tomato” in Italian. This refers to a pasta sauce’s fresh tomato flavor. Tomatoes are simmered in our Pomodoro Fresco line, but are not overcooked.

Does this jar of vodka sauce have alcohol in it?

Yes, jarred vodka sauce does contain vodka but just enough to bring out the flavor of tomatoes and to help to blend the tomatoes and the cream. There is nothing boozy about this sauce. A small amount of distilled spirits is added to the simmering sauce and most of it cooks off pretty quickly. The longer a sauce cooks, the more alcohol burns off.

Can kids eat your jarred vodka sauce?

Yes, kids can eat vodka sauce. Only a negligible amount is added to bring out the flavors and to help to emulsify the tomato sauce with the fresh cream. Vodka is added while the vodka pasta sauce simmers so most is burned off fairly quickly.

Should I add pasta water to this jarred sauce?

Pasta water is not necessary for all jarred sauces and recipes, but helpful in getting the sauce to stick to your pasta. Depending on the recipe, adding the hot, starchy water can give your final dish a looser, more smooth consistency. Just remember to add a little at a time, so that you can control the consistency.

How does this product differ from DeLallo’s other vodka sauces?

The main difference between our two jarred vodka sauces is the type of tomatoes used. Our line of Pomodoro Fresco Sauces are small-batch sauces made with just a few fresh ingredients. This jarred vodka sauce features Italian plum tomatoes for a richer, fresher tomato flavor. DeLallo Vodka Sauce is also a creamy tomato sauce, or “pink sauce,” but features California Roma tomatoes and a longer ingredient list to include more herbs and spices.
