Reviews For Marinara Sauce
Based on 33 Reviews
All the Rao sauces are amazing.... a must have!
- Donna McLernon
It is almost impossible to find a premade sauce that does not have sugar in it. This is delicious, and this is the best place to buy it.
Rao's Marinara Sauce
I have been getting this sauce for years! First, way back (1980 something), I ordered online by the case from them directly because at the time, you couldn't get it anywhere else. I even sent my Mother and Grandmother a case in Florida. They were Italian, but I knew as a jarred sauce they would accept it when they were in a pinch. Then fast forwarding a few years, it became available in high end grocery stores. then, Whallah! It was available in Giant and now Walmart! I was ordering online at Walmart as well as cases of Rao's whole tomatoes, (Did I mention I was Italian)? You can get the sauce in Walmart off the shelf (but not the canned whole organic tomatoes) but...the price on Thrive is better than the walmart price by a small margin. I would like to make the suggestion to carry the Raos whole organic tomatoes to Thrive. All in all, this is the best jarred sauce money can by. Seems expensive but a little goes a long way.
delicious and great with GF meatballs
I love the taste of this spaghetti sauce, and the fact that there is NO sugar, and just natural ingredients.
Easily one of my favorite jarred marinara sauces!
Savory Cupboard Staple
Once you try Roa's you'll be hard pressed to buy any other jar of sauce. It's our go to staple for plain o'l spaghetti, homemade pizza and chicken parmesan.
This is simply one of the best pasta sauces I've ever tried. It is my go to pasta sauce.
Excellent and vegan
Your sauce is excellent. My importantly it is vegan - I can eat it with a clear conscious knowing that no animals were hurt in preparation of this sauce.
- Irene Simmons
Now that's Italian :-)
I usually make sauce but on those days I'm too busy - and my husband requires his sauce for his pasta RAO does the job....tastes homemade and it should as they have a stellar reputation....highly recommend whether you make your own sauce or not...RAO is it!!
- Wanda I. Fazio
Better than homemade!
This is the best pasta sauce I've ever tried. I've been buying it for at least a year, but the price at Thrive Market is $2.00 less than Kroger, which makes me happy!
Freshest Bottled Tomato Sauce I've Ever Had
I was delighted the first time I opened one of these bottles to the fresh smell. The marinara is a nice mix of crushed and chunky, the flavor fresh and slightly sweet. It's really quite delicious.
This is from a great little Italian restaurant in Harlem, NY. To try and get a reservation in this fabulous restaurant is practically impossible. I think the wait is like 1-2 years....
My friend turned me on to this sauce and I can't eat Italian food without it now. WELL WORTH the price!!!
Rao's Marinara Sauce
As Homemade as it Gets
Just like I make at home. This makes me think, why bother? Fantastic sauce!
Very tasty sauce makes for easy dinner
I simmered Mario Batali's meatballs in a jar of this sauce. No words at dinner--just "nummy" noises were heard! Will definitely buy this again.
The best marinara sauce I have yet to eat. Used as a base for grass fed Hamburg and spaghetti squash. Absolutely delicious
- Patricia A.
Everyone in the house and visitors too are fans of this marinara sauce. It's a go to item at least once a week. The sauce is fresh tasting and doesn't have an acidic "bite." Just writing this review makes me want pasta and Rao's for lunch.
I love the fresh taste and the pure ingredients. I had been buying this at my local grocery store for twice this price! A great bargain!
- Toni Jo
Best Jarred Sauce
Amazing flavor complexity
This is my favorite spaghetti sauce. I am so happy with the short list of natural ingredients, and the fact that it comes in a glass jar-nothing but healthy!
The Absolute Best!
I've been buying this sauce by the case for many years. No other product can compare in taste and quality. It's great for pizza, pasta, chicken or eggplant parmesan ... basically anything that requires a tomato sauce. You cannot go wrong.
Rao's Marinara Sauce
I love this Marinara! You will too!
- Sheila Prior
Rao's sauce is the very best canned sauce on the market. Delicious! I wouldn't buy anything else. The Arrabiata is great too, if you like spicy.
I don't even have to add anything to it!
Normally with jarred pasta sauces, I just use them as a "base" and then still spend a couple hours doctoring it up, and simmering. After a friend suggested Rao's to me, and I saw that it had a short list of simple wholesome ingredients, I decided to try it as is.
This sauce needs absolutely nothing added! It's unbelievably delicious right out of the jar! This sauce is such a time-saver for me, I can have my whole dinner ready just in the time it takes me to cook the pasta! I can't wait to try making Country Captain with it when I have more time.
- Louise West
Can use a little more seasoning.
I am a vegetarian and love the natural ingredients in this marinara sauce!
Occasionally, the sauce can turn slightly bitter, which is unpleasant. I have found myself adding more garlic and basil to enhance the taste. The color and consistency are great, however.
This does not taste like it's out of a jar! I honestly didn't have high expectations given I was buying marinara sauce from a grocery store but my guests were asking for the recipe! I couldn't believe it! I went back to get more the next day and all of the jars were gone so I was ecstatic to see it here on Thrive.
- E. Green
I will be frank, this is one of the best marinara I've ever had. When cooking at high heat, I notice that some natural flavors fall off the profile. Sometime too, the pasta can overpower the sauce perhaps because the amount of water in the recipe is high. Other than that, it is amazing quality. Your best bet is to bake with it rather than over the stove top. It is one of the top sauces I have used regardless.
- Marilyn Griffith
Love this sauce
Love this sauce! Just warm it up and add your cooked meat and it's delicious. It tastes like your grandma's homemade sauce. :)
This sauce is great. I have tried less expensive sauces with the same ingredients, but they don't come close. This brand tastes like it is infused with liquid sunshine.
My favorite red sauce!
I'm not normally a fan of red sauce and I was a little skeptical when I bought this. It has become my favorite red sauce. It's so full of flavor that I can't seem to get enough of it. I use it over GF spaghetti and a little parmesan cheese and it's the best and easiest meal to make. Definitely going to make this a regular purchase.
Best tomato sauce in the world
Love this tomato sauce - I use it for pasta, eggs, on toast - everything. It's awesome!
