Surprise! There Really is no Added Sugar in the Red Sauce….

Baked Lasagna

Many times over the last 12 years we have been asked “how much sugar to you put in your red sauce?” There is much disbelief when we reply “None, there is no added sugar in the sauce.”  We have literally had guests tell us they don’t believe us… “no way, your sauce has a light, sweet taste; you have to put sugar in it!” OK, we will let you in on a little secret…. it’s not added sugar, it’s all about the tomatoes we use.  You see,  it has to do with understanding the chemical reactions of different foods depending on how they are cooked & the type of food you are cooking.  Here is the secret ingredient: Imported Italian Plum Tomatoes & we make the sauce fresh every morning!  The chemical breakdown of this specific tomato is what makes our sauce have a hint of sweetness.  So, relax & enjoy the next time you partake in a dish with red sauce at Joe’s Pasta House… there are no refined sugars added to the sauce!
