Always remember that using quality canned tomatoes will change any tomato sauce recipe from good to great. It's all in the sauce!.

San Marzano tomatoes from the Sarnese-Nocerino area in Italy, between Naples and Salerno, are far more than just a type of tomato. A “protected denomination of origin,” the venerable name of San Marzano tomatoes can only be claimed, by law, for tomatoes cultivated according to tradition, hand-harvested nowhere but in the Sarnese-Nocerino region. Grown in just the right rich volcanic soil in hot sunny summers, San Marzano means unduplicable flavor. Yield per acre and handling processes are jealously regulated to maintain the reputation and quality of this prized favorite.

These matchless, meaty, whole plum tomatoes are treasured by chefs around the world as essential in traditional Neopolitan cuisine and ideal for rich Italian tomato sauces. They are in fact considered to be THE BEST sauce tomatos in the world, but of course the uses are limitless. Apart from simple bases and pasta sauces, you can chop them up for soups, pizza's, and much more. What sets them apart from the well known Roma tomato, is a thinner and pointier shape but most importantly you will find the flesh to be much thicker with fewer seeds, and the taste to be much stronger, less sweet and less acidic. Many people describe the taste as bittersweet, like high-quality chocolate.

The Rega company, founded by the Rega family in 1965, offers only tomatoes stamped with seals of authenticity to guarantee you are getting the genuine San Marzano!
