Bolognese Sauce | Favuzzi | Well Seasoned, a gourmet food store

Passata, 480mL: $3.99

Favuzzi's divinely smooth passata recalls the taste of ripe cherry tomatoes, freshly cooked at the end of the summer. Passata is a great base ingredient for soups, tomato sauces and pizzas. Use it to simmer Italian sausages or veal meatballs, or simply to cook rice.

Unlike traditional passata, the Favuzzi version is made with cherry tomatoes, which impart a richer, slightly sweet taste.

Pizza Sauce, 240mL: $5.99

Made with a rich chopped tomato base, this pizza sauce contains caramelized onion pieces that impart a velvety texture. Its balanced flavour lets subtle notes of garlic and oregano shine through. It is the perfect consistency to spread easily, without being too runny (which could make the dough soggy).

Tinned Peeled Italian Tomatoes, 796mL: $3.49

Bright red and packed in a velvety coulis (twice as thick as commercial canned tomato brands), Favuzzi tomatoes have a firm flesh and are low in sodium to let their delicious taste fully shine.

This must-have product, which should be in your pantry at all times, can be used as an ingredient in many recipes: tomato sauce, ratatouille, chili, osso buco, ketchup, chutney, etc. These whole peeled tomatoes will also add flavour to your soups and beef stews. Tomatoes are peeled and canned within two hours of harvesting to preserve all their nutritional properties and good taste until the moment you use them.

San Mariano Tomatoes, 796mL: $5.99

San Marzano tomatoes are characterized by their intense red colour and their elongated shape, compared to other Italian varieties. They are also sweeter, fleshier, less acidic and contain fewer seeds. Our San Marzano tomatoes are packed in a particularly thick and smooth coulis, lightly seasoned with a basil leaf.

Since they are fleshy and have few seeds, San Marzano tomatoes are the ideal ingredient for any tomato-based sauce. With their subtle basil taste, they are delicious in a pizza sauce – in fact, they are the variety used in Naples, the birthplace of Italian pizza.
