Pasta Sauce

Where do your tomatoes come from?
We source the best California tomatoes from local farmers.
Where do your other ingredients in your sauce come from?
We use mostly California ingredients, as often as possible, to support the local farmers.
How long will a jar of pasta sauce last after I open it?
Pasta sauce will last about a week in the fridge- but if you eat it like I do, with a spoon straight out of the jar, it won’t last long at all!
Why do you add sugar?
We’ve played around with the pasta sauce recipes and have made formulas that do not have added sugar in them but they are far less superior in flavor. We just add a minimal amount to round out the flavor in the sauces for a more gourmet sauce. And, it’s what grandma used to do!

Do your products contain dairy?

What do I do if the seal is broken on the pasta sauce lid?
Keep the jar and contact us with the UPC code, best by date and where you purchased the sauce so we can look into the issue.
How spicy is the Jalapeño and Sriracha sauce?
