A generations-old recipe made new. Small batch sauce brimming with fresh ingredients. Our secret ingredient is LOVE. 

                       Warmly,

We make all our batches by hand! Really and truly HANDCRAFTED. Here is a photo of Michael at our kitchen after jarring a batch of sauce.

A jar of marinara sauce can’t be closer to homemade than this one. It is made with tomatoes, onions, olive oil, garlic, pepper, sea salt, herbs and spices, just the way Michael Tesoro’s grandmother did it. He and his wife, Robin, are following her recipe to make batches of it in the Berkshires. Use it on pasta and pizza, in stews or thinned with cream for soup. Add some chile flakes, more herbs, shards of meat or chunks of seafood if you wish and call it your own
