Do You Know What Ingredients Are In Your Favorite Sauce? @Victoria_BKLYN #Ad


disclosure   My great grandfather was from Naples, Italy on my mother’s side.  As a result, many of the dishes that my mother prepared for us when we were growing up were Italian recipes.  I can still remember how delicious everything smelled when she had pots boiling on the stove and us kids would walk in and out of the kitchen hoping that dinner was finally ready for us to devour.  Back then, most foods were made from scratch, including sauces.  As a Working Mom, I want to recreate all of the delicious recipes that I enjoyed when I was a kid but I just don’t have the time to spend hours cooking in the kitchen.

    Recently, in my quest to prepare those traditional Italian dishes that my mother used to make, I found Victoria Premium Pasta Sauces which is the first major pasta sauce brand to put their all natural ingredients on the front of their label.  This makes a big difference to me because, although I don’t have a lot of time to cook, I still want to give my family healthy foods without additives and preservatives.  Victoria never adds preservatives, water, sugar or paste to their sauce and slow kettle-cooks their all natural ingredients in small batches.

    One of my favorite recipes that Mom passed down to me is her spaghetti recipe.  Needless to say, my boys love when I make it and I decided to prepare it with Victoria Low Sodium Marinara Sauce.  I have high blood pressure so I love the fact that it comes in a low Sodium variety but I found that we didn’t have to compromise taste just because of this.  My spaghetti came out delicious!  As a matter of fact, I really loved Victoria because it had a fresh taste and wasn’t very acidic like I have found other pasta sauces to be.

    I could tell that with Victoria Sauce, ingredients certainly come first and I love knowing exactly what I am feeding the ones I love.  To learn more about Victoria’s flagship brand of premium pasta sauces, connect with them on Twitter and Facebook.  I’m sure you will be transcended to a time when traditional flavor and authenticity were a part of every meal like I was!

    This looks delicious. My mom’s family is Italian so that what I am always cooking.

  2. I love knowing what’s in my food, it’s why I like doing a lot of my cooking from scratch. I’ve never heard of this brand of sauce though and I don’t think we may have it here in CO but I’m going to be looking for it.

  3. This looks SO good. I always read ingredients to see what is in my food! I sometimes put things back when there are so many!

  4. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this sauce to try! Though we make a lot from scratch and can every year, I inevitably run out of pasta sauces or like to change things up from time to time. Natural ingredients are very important to me, I like to know that my family is getting nature’s best!

  5. This looks delish! I didn’t realize that they used all-natural ingredients. I definitely need to try this.

  6. Lois Alter Mark says

    That looks so good! I love that the ingredients are right there in front — nothing to hide!

  7. It is becoming more important to me every day and every time I go to the store. I am now researching and looking at labels more thoroughly. This is a sauce that I would love to try.

  8. TouristMeetsTraveler says

    Now that’s an amazing looking sauce! I’d love to give it a try.

  9. Chrissy Mazzocchi says

    My Mom has her own recipe as well and it’s amazing. I’d love to learn how to make my own.

  10. I try to get as little processed as I can and make things from scratch. If it is already prepared I definitely prefer it to be all natural.

  11. All natural ingredients are so important to me when I’m serving my family! I’ve not tried this sauce but I totally want to. I have a spaghetti addiction.

  12. We love spaghetti at our house. Natural ingredients are great too. Amber N

  13. Meagan Bailiff says

    we have tried over the years to slow transition into a family that eats mostly natural, real food.

  14. Sarah Hayes says

    I love this!! its so simple and natural. I def want spaghetti now

  15. I have to read labels as I cook for my mother and she is highly allergic to MSG and other ingredients. The first thing I look at when I buy a product is the ingredients. Your spaghetti looks awesome.

  16. margaret franks duncan says

    I love the natural stuff and it taste the best to me,and that looks so good!

  17. I make a lot of things from scratch, but pasta sauce, no way! It takes hours and the quality stuff like the Victoria is actually better than what I might make.

  18. tannawings says

    I haven’t seen this brand yet in our area. It looks good, and like you, we have to watch sodium and so much of the jars of suace have so much of it. The very best of course is when you can totally make your own, but I need to find a good sauce that tastes good!

  19. I have not seen this brand before but will have to look for it the next time I go to the grocery store. I always like to know what is in the food that I am eating. Thanks for sharing!

  20. I absolutely know what goes into my sauce because I make it myself! I never saw this brand. I don’t think we have it on the east coast.

  21. Rebecca Williams Parsons says

    I have had Victoria sauce love it and it tastes as it is almost homemade.

  22. It is important to have healthy all natural ingredients in my sauce and Victoria Sauces taste great and I have used them. I also make my own sauce.

  23. nicole dziedzic says

    I always read labels now as before I really didn’t. I am very educated on reading labels now and know what is what on the ingredients. I only buy natural and organic now.

  24. Allison Downes says

    I always like to home make as much as possible by using whatever I grow in the garden. If i ever buy anything processed I try to get natural or organic.

  25. I’m Italian on my father’s side. It’s so great to find out about Victoria’s sauce from you. I hope they have it in my area. I would love to have a natural, Italian sauce.
