It should be a passion!

Passion is what stirs my soul.

My favorite things in life:  My family, my friends and cooking for my loved ones.

When I'm cooking, what really makes my heart sing, is making a tomato sauce that captures the essence of summer and dances across your tongue as a symphony of delight.

My sauces are 100% natural, with vegetables sourced from local Northwest farms, without any preservatives or added sugar, slow cooked in small batches until they reach absolute perfection!

Here's my current marinara production list:




Mighty Mushroom

Roasted Eggplant

Organic Pomodoro al Forno - Seasonal/Limited Edition

These sauces are extremely versatile and can be used for more than just pasta.  With just one taste, you'll know that a lot of time and love went into making such a high quality sauce.
