    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What is marinara sauce?

    Marinara sauce is a type of pasta sauce—a simple sauce consisting of blended tomatoes (or tomato passata), olive oil and aromatics like garlic and herbs. This is probably the most popular tomato sauce, the one you use for just about everything. Classic marinara sauce does not include chunks of tomatoes or tomato skins, but is smooth in consistency.

    What is marinara sauce made of?

    Generally speaking, marinara sauce is made with puréed tomatoes (known as passata), olive oil and aromatics like fresh vegetables and herbs. There are some variations in marinara sauces such as the addition of capers, chili pepper flakes or basil leaves—to name a few.

    What does pomodoro fresco mean?

    Pomodoro fresco means “fresh tomato” in Italian. This refers to the fresh-tasting tomato flavor of our specialty line of pasta sauces.

    Should I add pasta water to this jarred sauce?

    Depending on the recipe and your desired consistency, you may want to add hot starchy pasta-cooking water to your sauce at the time you add the hot pasta. This helps the sauce to adhere to the noodles, but also loosens thicker sauces. It is not necessary, but a great way to give the final pasta dish just the right texture. Just be sure to add only a little at a time.

    What is the difference between marinara sauce and tomato basil sauce?

    The biggest difference between DeLallo Pomodoro Fresco Marinara Sauce and Pomodoro Fresco Tomato-Basil Sauce is the flavor that is in focus. Our Tomato-Basil Sauce highlights the tasty combination of tomato and fresh basil leaves. Our Pomodoro Fresco Marinara Sauce is a tomato-forward pasta sauce with a subtle complement of fresh vegetables and herbs.

    What is the difference between marinara sauce and spaghetti sauce?

    To be honest, there isn’t a big difference between jarred marinara sauce and spaghetti sauce. Marinara sauce generally refers to a simple sauce of blended tomatoes, olive oil and aromatics like chopped vegetables and herbs. Like marinara, spaghetti sauce consists of those same base ingredients but typically with an added vegetable or protein to make it a heartier sauce. In many cases, spaghetti sauce refers to a meat sauce.

    How do I make jarred marinara sauce better?

    DeLallo Pomodoro Fresco Marinara Sauce boasts a rich, developed flavor straight from the jar, but if you want to shake things up there are plenty of ways to add a new dimension to store-bought sauces. You can add ground beef or loose Italian sausage to make it heartier. Try Calabrian Chili Peppers or simple hot chili pepper flakes to spice things up. Add mascarpone cheese or heavy cream to create a creamy tomato sauce. It is so easy to get creative with jarred marinara sauce.

    How do I heat up this jarred marinara sauce?

    To heat jarred marinara sauce, simply pour it into an appropriately sized saucepan. Place it on the stovetop over medium to medium-low heat. Cover the saucepan with a lid to prevent splashing. Simmer for 5-7 minutes or until hot. This is when you would add hot pasta to the sauce. Stir to coat and cook on low heat for 2 minutes to marry the flavors. We do not recommend heating this sauce in the glass jar.

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

    Our line of Pomodoro Fresco Sauces, including this jarred Marinara Sauce, features red-ripe Italian tomatoes. These sauces are handcrafted with just a few ingredients for a more natural and authentic fresh-tasting tomato sauce. These are the biggest differences between our Fat-Free Marinara Sauce and our Pomodoro Fresco Marinara options. Our standard DeLallo Fat-Free Marinara Sauce is made with California Roma tomatoes rather than Italian tomatoes.
