Enjoy a vodka sauce that boasts unbelievable flavoring and freshness.
A popular staple of Italian-American cuisine, vodka sauce was originally invented by an Italian chef in the 1980s. Our Classic Vodka Sauce is a flavor-packed, authentic take on the original made domestically with the finest California-grown, vine-ripened tomatoes. We carefully blend these premium tomatoes with locally sourced heavy cream, real vodka, butter, virgin olive oil, fresh onions, kosher salt, Romano cheese, fresh garlic and parsley. We simmer this potent mixture for several hours, a process that brings out the full flavors of every ingredient.
Use our Classic Vodka Sauce in a traditional Penne a la Vodka dish or use it creatively in other non-traditional dishes. Either way, the exceptional flavors and fresh ingredients will never reveal that this sauce came out of a jar. No one will ever know you conveniently popped open a jar instead of spending hours slaving away at the stove!
Our company tagline of “No Artificial Anything” applies to our Classic Vodka Sauce, so you can bring vodka sauce that transports you to the heart of Italy right to your table. We never add sugar to our Classic Vodka Sauce to preserve its freshness, allowing the flavors of the wholesome, natural ingredients to come through. Just read the label, and we guarantee there will only be ingredients you recognize and can pronounce listed.
Vodka sauce has become a staple of Italian-American cuisine. We believe that ours is a faithful interpretation of the original invention by an Italian chef in the 1980s.

“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. ”

“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.”
