Mutti® Crushed Tomatoes (Polpa) with Basil starts with sun-ripened 100% Italian tomatoes from the Emilia Romagna region. Picked when perfectly ripe, cold crushed, and processed with our patented technique to capture the flavor of just-harvested tomatoes. To this we add fragrant Italian basil and a pinch of Mediterranean sea salt. Excellent for a fast tomato sauce, gazpacho, or even a Mutti® Mary.
