Tomato Carbonara Spaghetti with Tomato Puree

Tomato Carbonara Spaghetti with Tomato Puree

Carbonara Rossa combines two legendary Italian dishes, Carbonara and Amatriciana, to create a wonderfully creamy and tomato-y dish for the holiday season.

Made with Tomato puree

Mutti® Tomato Puree (Passata) is sun-ripened 100% Italian tomatoes transformed into sweet velvety puree with just a touch of Mediterranean sea salt. After eliminating the skin and seeds, the tomatoes are pureed to achieve a smooth, luxurious texture while maintaining their bright red color and naturally sweet flavor. Fantastic in marinara sauce, tomato soup, or even a Bloody Mary.
