Products in Marinara Sauces
Every Italian household has its own unique marinara sauce, made from a "secret" recipe that has been handed down from one generation to the next. Marinara was named to describe the traditional sauce made by Italian sailors and fishermen following their excursions at sea. The mariners combined a few simple ingredients that were readily available and cooked quickly to prepare their savory Marinara sauce. In Barilla MARINARA Sauce, the Barilla family shares its special recipe, which has been enjoyed by four generations of Barillas, with you and your family. The secret to preparing the best homemade marinara sauce is in the quality of the ingredients and the time-honored technique of "layering" flavors. Barilla uses a special cooking process that allows each of the sauces ingredients - tomato, onion, and a unique combination of spices (thyme, parsley, and black pepper) - to balance perfectly in the sauce. And unlike other brands that use more tomato paste and flavorings than natural ingredients, Barilla starts with fresh tomatoes and natural ingredients to provide the same richness and thickness you find in homemade sauces. Barilla MARINARA - nothing is closer to the authentic homemade sauce enjoyed in Italy.
