Why Rao’s Homemade®

The Leading Premium Pasta Sauce Brand
We created the premium pasta sauce category in 1992 and thanks to you we remain the leading brand by a wide margin as we enter our 25th year.

Born In Rao’s Legendary Restaurant
Created by Frank Pellegrino Sr. so consumers could enjoy the authentic Italian tomato sauce served at Rao’s acclaimed East Harlem, NY restaurant – at home.

Made From The Finest Italian Tomatoes and Olive Oil
Only hand-picked, naturally ripened tomatoes from the sun drenched fields of southern Italy. A sweeter taste and less acidic than ordinary tomatoes.

Super Clean Label
Only natural ingredients. Our precious tomatoes are washed and steam peeled. No tomato blends, paste, water, starches, filler, colors or added sugar. Gluten free. Pure Italian olive oil and fresh basil.

A Pasta Sauce Flavor for Everyone
Twelve great pasta sauce flavors to please everybody, from the garlic obsessed to cheese lovers to the vegan in your house – all made the Rao’s Homemade® way.

Brings Your Family Together
Tastier sauce means tastier meals means nobody wants to miss dinner. That’s important, because family time together at the table fosters communication, sharing and togetherness.

Delicious & Nutritious
Rao’s Homemade® pasta sauces are a good source of antioxidant vitamin C and deliver the phytonutrient dynamo lycopene – both increasingly linked to overall health, wellness and immunity.

Great Value For The Money
Rao’s Homemade® is a premium pasta sauce, yes. But on a per meal basis it’s almost always a much better value for your money than takeout or other eat-at-home alternatives.
