Favuzzi Piedmont-style tomato sauce
Made with crushed tomatoes, our comforting Piedmont-style sauce is enhanced by bold red wine flavours, balanced acidity and a peppery finish.
Piedmont-style sauce is typically served with fettucine, tagliatelle, gnocchi or stuffed pasta such as agnolotti. Turn it into a delicious ragù by adding sausage meat or ground meat. Average proportions are 375 mL (1 ½ cup) tomato sauce for 500 g (1 lb) pasta. Don't throw away all your pasta cooking water: it's a good idea to add a bit to your sauce. Mix in ¼ to ½ cup (or a ladleful) cooking water with the sauce before adding the pasta. The salted, starchy water will enhance flavours and thicken the sauce, helping it stick to the pasta.
Nothing rivals with the taste of Italian tomatoes ripened under the Mediterranean sun and seasoned with fresh, locally grown aromatics. If our sauces have a velvety texture, comparable to a homemade sauce, it is partly because they are prepared in small batches and cooked over an open flame, the same technique traditionally used by Italian mammas, allowing the water to evaporate gradually.
The De Laurentiis family owns an artisanal business in the Abruzzo mountain region. For two generations, it has been drawing on traditional ingredients and know-how to offer products with an authentically Italian taste. The family grows organic tomatoes, saffron and other seasonings on its own plots of land, and turns them into sauces and condiments thanks to a veritable regiment of cooks who busily tend the ovens.

The artisanal business Casina Rossa (red house in Italian) has been based in the Abruzzo mountains for two generations. The cooks prepare typically Italian specialties following their grandmothers’ methods, such as simmering tomato sauces over low heat. The company focuses on using the best local products and superior quality ingredients. The artisans’ talent and know-how are the reason Favuzzi chose them to make its branded tomato sauces and truffle olive oil.
