Dei Fratelli Pasta Sauce

I know today is St. Patrick's Day, but I don't have anything green for you. The color for today is red! The color of romance, danger... and lycopene. The product for today carries a bit of the first two and an extraordinary amount of the third. For those of you that are not familiar with lycopene, you should know that it is the substance that makes tomatoes red and cares for your healthy heart.

What does this have to do with Dei Fratelli Pasta Sauce? Well, a lot. There are quite a few pasta sauces out there that are gluten free, but not like this! Dei Fratelli loves their tomatoes, and it shows from the first bite to the last. If I can help my heart beat and enjoy food like this, I'm a happy woman.

Ease of Use

Dei Fratelli Pasta Sauce comes in a jar. It is easy to heat and serve, or add to any recipe.


Jars are not high on my list of artistic treasures, but this one impressed me. I immediately felt like I had to have wine and some crusty bread to complete any pasta meal that had sauce from a jar like this.

The sauce itself had chunks of tomatoes. They were irregular, these were not your typical diced tomatoes made into a sauce. There was also a plethora of herbs and spices to tempt my eyes.

Taste and Texture

The flavor of Dei Fratelli Pasta Sauce is rich and bold, while being slightly tangy and sweet at the same time. It was a little spicy, but nothing overpowering. The texture is perfect to pair with any pasta dish. It was chunky enough to stand up to short pastas, but not so much that it would overpower spaghetti. The best part was that it tasted so fresh! It was like I had made it myself out of my garden (which I do not have due to the act that I am "gardening deficient). The little one was not as pleased with the sauce as I was- It was too spicy for her (but then, she has a very sensitive tongue).

Overall Value

A four pack of Dei Fratelli Pasta Sauce runs about $15.99 on their site. Not a bad price considering it would make an easy and impressive dinner for company.


I recommend Dei Fratelli Pasta Sauce to anyone who is not a ten year old girl with a tender tongue :)
