    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What is spicy vodka sauce? 

    Spicy vodka sauce is the iconic “pink sauce” with the addition of crushed red pepper for a spicy kick. Vodka sauce is an Italian-American favorite—a pasta sauce featuring ripe tomatoes along with fresh cream and hard Italian cheeses. The vodka is used to bring out the dynamic aroma of the tomato and in emulsifying that tomato with the cream. Just a splash of vodka is all that is necessary to achieve this.

    What does pomodoro fresco mean?

    The term pomodoro fresco translates to “fresh tomato” in Italian. This refers to the brilliant tomatoes used in our specialty collection of pasta sauces and their fresh flavor.

    Does this jar of spicy vodka sauce have alcohol in it?

    Yes, there is a minute amount of vodka in our Spicy Vodka Sauce. Only a little vodka is used to enhance the tomato flavors and emulsify the ingredients. The alcohol burns off pretty rapidly when cooking.

    Can kids eat your jarred spicy vodka sauce?

    This popular pasta sauce only contains a negligible amount of alcohol. That said, it is a spicy vodka sauce and so for that reason, it may not be a kid’s go-to pasta sauce.

    Should I add pasta water to this jarred sauce?

    It is not necessary to add pasta water to this pasta sauce. It all depends on you desired consistency. You can add hot pasta water to your sauce to help it to stick to your noodles. For thicker sauces, it will thin it out. To best control the consistency, only add a little pasta water at a time until you reach the desired texture.

    What is the difference between spicy vodka sauce and traditional vodka sauce?

    The difference between Spicy Vodka Sauce and our traditional Vodka Sauce is in the name itself. Our spicy version uses crushed red pepper to spice up the same beloved creamy tomato pasta sauce.

    What is the difference between spicy vodka sauce and arrabbiata sauce?

    The main difference between our Spicy Vodka Sauce and Arrabbiata Sauce is that our Arrabbiata Sauce does not contain cream or cheese. Arrabbiata is a tomato sauce; whereas, Spicy Vodka Sauce contains fresh cream and hard Italian cheeses (Parmesan and Pecorino Romano). Spicy Vodka Sauce is classified as a creamy tomato pasta sauce somewhere between Alfredo and classic Arrabbiata. Both use spicy chili peppers to create an irresistible heat.
