Spaghetti Marinara

Spaghetti Marinara

Spaghetti Marinara is a classic, simple, and easy dish consisting of a rich tomato sauce and fresh flavors of the sea. Pair the Marinara sauce with al dente spaghetti and enjoy the elegance of this exquisite dish.

Made with Polpa

The Mutti Chopped Tomatoes maintains all the freshness of freshly-harvested tomatoes. It’s a unique product because it brings together the tomato juice with its most pulpy part, chopped into extremely fine pieces, a feature which makes it right for long cooking times even at high temperatures, like in the oven. It is ideal for homemade pizza, for recipes with meat, vegetables and legumes and to dress fresh durum wheat pasta or egg pasta
