At Tre Mari Bakery, we’re passionate about introducing Italian cuisine to a diverse audience. Our customers frequently come to us seeking product suggestions, and that has led to the creation of our latest article series, "Tre Mari's Top 5." Through this collection of articles, we will present our top five recommendations across various categories or Italian gastronomy. In this edition, we unveil our thoughtfully curated, top five Italian pasta sauces:


Aglio e olio pasta

The simplest of our top five sauces, Aglio e Olio is perfect for those busy evenings when you need to cook up a flavorful dish in a hurry. The minimalist combination of garlic (aglio) and olive oil (olio) creates a wonderful, savoury flavour you can't resist! If you want to take a walk on the wild side, you can even add a dash of chili flakes and some parmesan.


Pasta carbonara

Carbonara is a timeless classic that captures the essence of Italian comfort food. This creamy and indulgent sauce originates from Rome and features a rich blend of eggs, pecorino cheese, pancetta, and black pepper. A true embodiment of Italian culinary artistry, Carbonara never fails to impress with its luxurious taste and texture.


Rigatoni in bolognese sauce

A symbol of Italian hospitality and warmth, Bolognese sauce holds a special place in the hearts of many pasta enthusiasts. This hearty, meat-based sauce hails from Bologna and is traditionally made with a mix of ground beef, pork, and veal, slow-cooked with tomatoes, onions, carrots, celery, and red wine. The result is a robust and deeply flavorful sauce that generously coats your pasta, providing a satisfying and comforting experience.


Pesto pasta

Hailing from the coastal region of Liguria, Pesto Genovese is the vibrant green sauce that results from the heavenly blend of fresh basil, pine nuts, garlic, parmesan cheese, and extra-virgin olive oil. Known for its bright color and distinctive aroma, Pesto Genovese is a celebration of summer and pairs exquisitely with pasta, making it a go-to choice for those who adore the taste of pure, unadulterated freshness.


Marinara sauce in a mason jar

At the top of our list, the quintessential pasta sauce--Marinara. Bursting with the goodness of ripe tomatoes, garlic, onions, herbs, and a hint of olive oil, Marinara is a versatile, timeless masterpiece that embodies the heart and soul of Italian cuisine.
