Nello's Marinara Sauce Review & Photos

Southern-Crafted Premium Marinara

 Nello's Sauce was built in 2010 by Neal "Nello" and his wife Heather. They sold their first jar of sauce in January 2011 online and the first jar appeared in store June 2011! Since then, Nello's has grown rapidly and is considered one of the leading premium tomato sauce companies. The sauces are Gluten free and Vegan. The jars contain less salt than other leading sauce brands and has no high fructose corn syrup whatsoever! No sugar added, at all!

Nello's sauce is made from scratch. Handmade, and made by small batches in North Carolina. Using only the best ingredients. Including 100% cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil and US grown vine-ripened tomatoes!
The sauces come in 3 flavors:
  • Marinara
  • Piedmont Pomodoro
  • Hot Pepper
Nello's is the main sauce in Plated- A DIY meal kit delivered to your door.  Nello's has just been approved to be available in another 100 stores throughout the country! They are in several hundred stores! Want to find a retailer near you? Click here.

 Classic red sauce but with a rich unadulterated tomato, garlic, and herb palate. Perfectly balanced. Inspired by Nello's great-grandmother, Angelina, of Carife, Italy. Serve with traditional pasta and baked dishes. 14oz and 25oz.

My Thoughts:
I could not wait to open a jar, smell the sauce, and then stick a spoon in the jar to have a taste. After hearing about Nello's and becoming a Mombassador, I couldn't wait to taste the sauces. The Marinara blew me away! I couldn't believe how delicious and flavorful the sauce is! My husband told me that it is by far the best jarred sauce he has ever had! And, I couldn't agree more. My son loved it as well. Having 3 dishes at dinner time. He was completely covered in sauce and spaghetti!
You can really taste the freshness of the ingredients. The tomatoes that are used are fresh. You would never tell that the sauce was made with no sugar added. It has a little bit of a sweetness and very savory.  I can tell that this sauce was made with love. You can tell that Neal "Nello" has a passion for his sauces and for the brand. The quality speaks for itself. The sauce is worth every penny.

I'd recommend using this sauce on homemade pizzas. A great marinara for mozzarella sticks and/or calzones. Or, if you are like me, right out of the jar :)
