You are going to love all that you can do with a healthy pasta sauce.

If you are looking for a healthy pasta sauce made with fresh ingredients you would choose to make if you had the time, you have come to the right place. At Mama Yolanda’s Traditional Sauces®, there’s No Artificial Anything in our sauces, not even so-called “natural flavorings.” Instead we use California vine-ripened pear tomatoes, fresh onions, fresh carrots, extra virgin olive oil, Kosher salt, and fresh basil.

Healthy Pasta Sauce

Our uncomplicated, healthy pasta sauce recipes were created by Chef Darek W. Haupt, CEC after a 40-year career as an executive chef specializing in Italian haute cuisine. It was his passion to bring healthy and wholesome products to market so every homemaker and novice chef could produce top-quality meals for their family and friends in a way that previously could only be found in the finest restaurants. Early in his career, he met a first-generation Italian restauranteur who took him under her wing and tutored him in what she called Italian “peasant cuisine”. Our company is named in honor of her memory.

Our healthy sauces are the perfect solution for those on specific eating plans seeking ingredients that conform to their practices, such as gluten-free, keto, and/or vegan diets. If you are looking for a low-sugar tomato sauce, you’ll love ours because we never put in added sugars. The possibilities for using our sauces are virtually endless. From swapping out the tomato sauce in a non-Italian recipe to using it for your Italian-style dishes, we are confident your family and dinner guests will love everything you prepare. They’ll be certain that you slaved over a hot stove making homemade pasta sauce from the local greengrocer and will never guess that it is good for them, too! Or… they could believe that you bought it from a Michelin-starred restaurant! 😊

So, whether you choose our Authentic Italian Tomato Gravy or Classic Vodka Sauce, you’ll look like a rock star all while feeling confident that you are feeding your family and dinner guests a nutritious and healthy meal.

“Mama Yolanda's takes me back to fond childhood memories of my Italian grandmother's homemade sauce. It makes any favorite dish--baked ziti, lasagna, eggplant parmigiana--even more special. ”

P. Zazzara, Alexandria, VA

“My family absolutely loves this sauce. I was never a fan of “jarred” sauce because it always had to add so many ingredients to make it taste halfway decent; but this tastes just like I made it myself! I don’t have to add not one herb to make it taste better because it is already so delicious! Not to mention the fact that the ingredients are fresh, with nothing artificial. This is the only sauce we use!”

S. Papageorgio, Mooresville, NC

“Tried this sauce (gravy) and can say I haven't had sauce this good since getting homemade sauce from a friend. Definitely better than the name brand, store bought. A quick read of the ingredients lets you know you are getting quality with no unnecessary fillers”

A. Ramos, Mooresville, NC

“The vodka sauce is great... I use it for ziti and tortellini and have gone through 4 jars in the past month. The ingredients are simple and delicious.”

Mike S.

“Mama Yolanda's sauce is our families favorite! We first tried it when our youngest child was 2 and SUPER picky. She gobbled up her spaghetti and wanted more! We now eat it on a variety of foods at least once a week. It authentic, healthy and flavorful. It's the best!!”

Jenn W., State College, PA

“Mama Yolanda’s tomato gravy is simply delicious. With quality Italian ingredients, the flavor is fresh and authentic. We love it!”

M. Papa, Sparta, NJ

“Mama Yolanda’s Sauce is the absolute best spaghetti sauce I have ever had! It’s just as good, if not better than the marinara sauces I indulged in when eating my way around Italy. This sauce truly captures the authentic taste of what spaghetti sauce should taste like!”

Linda C. Port Hueneme, CA

“Once you have Mama Yolanda’s you will never want to have another spaghetti sauce out there (or even bother making your own)! I live on the West Coast where we don’t have it yet so I have considered planning my next trip to North Carolina where I can buy a few cases. I am not kidding.”

D. Lee, Ojai, CA

“I follow a strict keto diet and finding a spaghetti sauce that not only tastes great but has no sugar was impossible until I came across Mama Yolanda’s. The natural sweetness from fresh vegetables really comes through and leaves me feeling completely satisfied. You will never want to eat spaghetti sauce with sugar again.”

Ana C. Palm Desert, CA
