I’d resigned to the fact that making my own sauce was the only way to get what I desire from a pasta dish. I’m usually quite disappointed with what I get out of a jar; there is usually too much sugar and/or not enough sustenance. Pasta dishes are supposed to be easy, not lack-luster and from my experiences these terms are synonymous. But Mezzetta has changed my mind!
My family had the privilege of trying Mezzetta Napa Valley Bistro’s All Natural Amatriciana with Pancetta & Sautéed Onions. The sauce was chunk with bites of meat and a little spicy for my husband, and was tomato-y enough for me. This was truly a simple meal with all the flavor of homemade sauces.
For this meal I boiled pasta, drained, stirred in sauce, heated, and served. I even had time on this rushed evening to make some garlic toast (which my husband loves but I ALWAYS forget to do) and blend a fruit-veg smoothie. I didn’t have to add anything to this sauce to have it appeal to my family, even my 21MO loved it.
The Mezzetta family really knows what they’re doing, but they should as they’ve had their company since 1935. Now in the fourth generation, the Mezzetta family is continuing their commitment to bring the highest quality foods available to their customers. Mezzetta sources the finest fresh produce from the sun-drenched soils of California, Italy, Spain, France, and Greece and prepares their products according to their Italian family recipes at state-of-the-art production facility in Napa Valley.
