Sharing The Love!
Isn’t it time you weaned yourself off the old standby jars of Prego and Ragu? Even if you’re not the make-it-from-scratch type, you can still enjoy homemade-tasting sauce on your pasta, thanks to Somerville-based Sauces ’n Love. Its eight varieties — including Pomodoro & Basilico, Arrabbiata, Pezzettoni, and Pesto — come in see-through microwavable plastic containers, a welcome upgrade from the traditional glass jars. Sauces ’n Love, which was founded in February 1999 by Italian chef Paolo Volpati-Kedra and his wife, Tessa Edick, boasts that it uses only all-natural and organic ingredients in its sauces, and its labels back up the claim: the container of Pezzettoni, for example, lists tomato, onion, extra-virgin olive oil, carrot, celery, fresh organic rosemary, salt, and pepper as its only ingredients. And as ready-made sauces go, its taste is equally revolutionary.
Available for $3.99–$8.49 at Bread & Circus stores, Wild Oats Markets, Zathmary’s Markets, and other local stores.
