The classic... the staple... the mother of all cooking sauces. Bursting with juicy tomato, just the right amount of garlic and a familiar hint of herbiness. Heat and serve straight up with pasta, use as a base for meat dishes or cheat at pizza sauce!

Forget everything you know about cooking sauces, your ticket to an easy meal is in this jar! Made the Sauce Shop way... in small batches, by hand, using nothing artificial.

  • Suitable for vegans
  • Serves 4
  • Nothing artificial, just full-on flavour
  • Made in the UK

In 2014 we came to the realisation that the sauces we were buying weren't doing our food justice. What started in a home kitchen, is now a team of 34 food lovers producing thousands of bottles of sauce on a weekly basis.

Meatball Masterclass

So good on meatballs and pasta.

Fabian Brown (Sunderland, GB)
Good but no longer great :(

This second purchase was not as great as my first purchase last year.
I've tried 2 bottles of the 6 I ordered, 1 tasted like salsa, the second tasted like normal tomato taste.
Still tasty but not as great as my first bottle (last year, old recipe) which tasted of fresh tomatoes :(
(Still miles better than normal sauce at the supermarket).

Hey Fabian,

Thank you for the honest review. We are happy that you are still into the product! But we as a company noticed it was way too thick in the first recipe and made the decision to change the recipe just slightly. Pleased to hear you think it is still tastier then other supermarket brands :) We always strive for that!

Adam Kettlety (Bristol, GB)
A taste sensation!

Superb, better than any supermarket cook in sauce 👍🏻

That's the aim Adam! We gotta make cook in sauces actually decent ;)

Andy Murdock (New Southgate, GB)
Great flavour

We love using this sauce on a pizza base as the basis for our homemade pizzas. Fabulous tomato flavour.

Yesssss :) It works really well for a base. You should totally give the Original BBQ one a try as a base sometime too!

Christian Mickley (Sidmouth, GB)

The nicesttasting tomatoe cookin sauce for bolognaise, lasagne,and all dishes needing a tomatoes lift.

Awesome, thanks Dianne!

Dave Pope (Milton Keynes, GB)

Bought this before a couple of times, bought it now and will buy it again. Ignore the fake Italian sauces advertised on the box - this stuff is more authentic than any of that stuff.

Ryan Blake (Gateshead, GB)
Lovely sauce

Used it in a spaghetti bolognaise which went down a storm.

Love it as a Bolognese base, thanks Ryan!

Ron Innes (Manchester, GB)
An extraordinary tomato sauce

As a pasta lover I have experimented with various sauces however I have now found “the tomato sauce” for my pasta.
The taste is full on tomato with just the right kick from the herbs.
It is rich, thick, has a great texture.
It’s the one for me from now on.

Hi Ron, thanks so much for the review! Love that
