Reviews For Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce with Fresh Basil

Based on 26 Reviews

The best jarred marinara on the market

If you're not going homemade, go with Raos. It is more expensive, but worth the price. And, Thrive has the best price. All of their sauces are excellent, but this is my favorite.

- Mary Kelley

Tastes homemade, fresh and healthy. We will never go back to Prego, which had been a staple in our house for years. Even got the enthusiastic thumbs up from my son, who is a spaghetti expert.

A very good sauce. I am so picky when it comes to pasta sauce and usually make my own but I was very pleased with this one. I love the way it sticks to the pasta and it has a great flavor. I added a bit of Italian sausage, some black olives and a bit more seasoning. Yum! Will definitely buy this again.

Rao Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce

Best jarred sauce EVER! Got a thumbs up from both kids when I added ground turkey sausage to it and served it over gluten free pasta.

- Wendei

Great sauce

We love the taste and thickness of this sauce on spaghetti and pizza. This is my second time buying it.

- Linda

Wonderful Flavor

What a refreshing flavor! We tasted every bit of the tomato and basil without it being over powered! I added ground turkey and it was a hit!

- Patricia

Sooooo Good!

I've tried all the store brands and i found the Mushroom flavor to be great, though this sauce right here destroys all others as far as taste! And it's organic. This is the only brand i will buy from now on whenever possible!

- Saul

Best Sauce Ever!

I made spaghetti and meatballs and used this sauce and OMG was it delicious! My husband and daughter couldn't believe it was Organic and made with natural ingredients because they said it taste way better than the store bought sauces. This is the only sauce I am going to use from now on.

- Nati S.

The Very Best! (next to Nona's)

I tried the marinara, the arrabiata and the tomato basil...JUST LIKE NONA'S ! Every week I change my mind as to which is my favorite...this week...tomato basil. Love you for jarring this magic :)

- Mary Ann

Raos Marinara Sauce

The best jarred tomato sauce I have ever eaten, and so good for you too!!

- Theresa


Very tasty.

- Julie


By far the best sauce I have ever tried for spaghetti!!! :D :D :D

- Amy


I was given a jar or Rao's Garden Vegetable for Christmas and I instantly fell in love. The Marinara with Basil is my second favorite Rao's, but they are all amazing! I have been known to eat it right out of the jar...sad, but true.

The Garden Vegetable is hard to find (take the hint Thrive Market).

My Husband Wants This To Be Our Go-To

My husband and I have been looking for a go-to spagetti sauce for our entire marriage - 5 years! Finally, we found one that we both like with clean ingredients. I made it with hot italian beef sausage and it was SOOOO good. This is our new favorite.

- Dede

Good solid pasta sauce

I like Raos sauce because it has real tomatoes, low sugar, reasonable amount of sodium and all natural ingredients. A lot of the pasta sauce on the shelves is just sugar and water with tomatoes that aren't organic or pure, so you taste sugar and water and a few spices. This tastes like home made pasta sauce, which has a strong tomato flavor with just a hint of sweetness. I heat it up and pour it over ravioli, and also over my roast beef and cheese sandwiches to add a zesty flavor.

- Brian P.

Tastiest pasta sauce out there

When I'm buying pasta sauce, I want the sugar content to be 4gm per serving or less, and for the sauce to have real organic tomatoes as its base.

Raos has both of these and then some. It's made with Italian tomatoes, oregano, basil and other basic natural spices and no added sugar, salt or preservatives. It's the real thing, an authentic tomato flavor without that sweet aftertaste of sauces that have corn syrup or added sugar. I love this for a basic spaghetti and meatball dish or lasagne. Great sauce at a great price.

- Brittany Powell


I was buying the gluten-filled version that I could find on regular store shelves, and I'm glad I gave this a chance. It has a whole lot less sodium, calories, and sugar than the version I was buying before, and it tastes just as good. It has a much less sweet taste while also have a stronger flavor of tomato. It's pretty much exactly how I feel a tomato basil marinara sauce would taste. It actually tastes more like a gourmet sauce instead of just a tomato sauce that had a fancy name applied to it. This is an impressive jar of sauce, and it's perfect on my dishes.

- Darius


This product has real tomato flavor. It is rich and smooth. I love the richness of the flavor combined with basil poured on my pasta. Delicious.

- Grace Lucas

Tastes like homemade sauce!

This is one of the best jarred tomato sauces I've had. Really smooth, robust, real tomato flavor. It tastes very much like homemade sauce. It even has just the right amount of tomato seeds in it, which I love, it adds great texture. The basil flavor is not as strong here as some other basil sauces I've had, so you may or may not like that. Overall top quality sauce, well worth the price.

- Opal

Best I've tried

This is without a doubt the best tomato sauce I've tried. I find most of them to be either too acidic, or overly spiced with very strong dried herbs. Rao's is fresh-tasting and flavorful without being overwhelming. Recommended.
