Mr Organic is an English brand with Italian Blood… and our blood is tomato juice. All our pasta sauces are created and produced in our factory just south of Rome. Italian pasta sauces, made in Italy by Italians. It doesn’t get much more authentic.
Originally a recipe thrown together with bits and bobs in the store cupboard, this sauce originates from Naples where luckily there were fresh yummy tomatoes, capers and olives lying around! Our recipe is pretty traditional and we don't add any anchovy which can sometimes be used. Though, we do add a pinch of chilli which we think enhances the complimentary flavours of the other ingredients.
With a delectable creaminess from the ricotta, the sweetness of the red peppers and a sparkling lemony ZING!, this sauce is truly irresistible. Serve with pasta al dente, some shavings of parmesan and a sprinkling of fresh basil.
Marinara Sauce, is one of Italy's most popular sauces.
This wonder herb represents a symbol of love, a passport to heaven or a spiritual protector in certain cultures. Our Basilico sauce is beautifully simple and yet simply beautiful, using fresh basil for intense flavour. A true Italian classic.
Arrabbiata gets its name from the Italian word for ‘angry’. In this sense the anger is conveyed with CHILLI! Having said this, our Arrabbiata is so perfectly spiced that you feel anything but anger!
Our chef Andrea uses a variety of wonderful herbs to make this sauce… parsley, oregano, thyme and fennel seed. With or without meat, this sauce has the potential for you to make it your own, adding any other ingredients you want, like mushrooms! The longer you leave this dish cooking, the more intense the flavour becomes and no matter what, grated parmesan on top is a must!
It is said that Tofu was first discovered in 164 BC by Liu An, a Chinese king, philosopher and writer. Since then this legendary food has enjoyed the wonderful reputation of being full of protein, healthy for your heart - and very tasty! This sauce, mixing tofu with sweet red peppers and sun ripened tomatoes, brings a modern Italian slant to an ancient Oriental food.
Containing about as much protein as a sirloin steak, and a generous helping of essential amino acids, Seitan is quite the wonderfood. Pronounced 'Sey-tahn' (not 'Satan'!), Seitan is a wheat gluten and wonderfully good for you. We've given our Seitan sauce a gentle kick of chilli, making it perfect for a devilishly delicious (and non-meaty!) pasta dish.
Good for your brain, your bones, your blood - Soya is all-round good for you! Which is why we've mixed it with our wonderful tomatoes, a healthy helping of cracked black pepper and a bouquet of fabulous herbs to make this exceptional sauce. Like the rest of the Veg Amore range, it needs no meat to complete it: just warm through, and serve with pasta.
Pesto comes from the Italian “Pestare” which means to pound or crush and that’s basically how we produce these delicious products - this sauce dates back to Roman times!
This pesto is based on a traditional recipe from Genoa where the best basil is grown and where this simple sauce originated. We have altered it slightly to make it suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike, but it still tastes just as great as our original recipe - and we consider it to be by far the best on the market. Ideal for pasta but it is also great to mix with cream for chicken dishes or dolloped onto oven-roasted garlic and chilli aubergines. It’s so versatile that we would recommend keeping a jar in the kitchen cupboard at all times.
This delicious Sundried Tomato Pesto also has its roots in Southern Italy. Made with the best sundried tomatoes from Puglia, this sauce is ideal for pasta but also great as a dip or topped on bruschetta. Again we have recently changed the recipe to make it perfect for vegetarians and vegans too.
This delicious Red Pepper Pesto is made with selected organic peppers from Puglia, ideal for pasta but also great as a dip or topped on bruschetta.
As all the Mr Organic pestos, it's suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
