Tomato Sauce

HomeTomato Sauce

Our traditional Italian sauces make a flavorful, healthy alternative to canned and mass-produced tomato sauce in a jar.

Imagine taking any recipe you have that calls for tomato sauce and kicking it up a notch with an equal amount of a delicious, traditional pasta sauce. At Mama Yolanda’s Traditional Sauces®, we highly recommend our Authentic Italian Tomato Gravy and Classic Vodka Sauce as more than just great sauces for your lasagna and other Italian dishes. You can add them to practically anything as a flavor boost, even if it isn’t an Italian recipe.

Tomato Sauce

Switching out canned tomato sauce for our pasta sauce has other benefits besides flavor. Since our products are made with the finest and freshest ingredients, they are far healthier. Many tomato sauce products on the market have added “natural flavors,” sugar (in various forms), and are made with excess salt and tomato puree. Our sauces do not have added sugar or artificial flavoring . Our authentic flavors come only from fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh onions, fresh carrots, fresh basil, real heavy cream and other fresh, wholesome ingredients.

Besides our sauces being healthier and more flavorful, there are no food allergy fears because there is nothing hidden from you. The premium ingredients you see on our label come from nature… not a lab. There is no way to know what was used when creating a “natural flavor” so using regular canned tomato sauce or any mass-produced product with that vague term listed in the ingredients could cause an allergic reaction. In addition, our sauces are sourced and produced in the USA, using premium California vine-ripened tomatoes and the freshest ingredients. Whenever possible, we source other ingredients from local farmers and co-ops to ensure a trackable supply chain that avoids the questionable practices sometimes associated with large, commercial farms and food producers.

If you are one who likes to know exactly what you are eating, consider our amazing traditional Italian sauces as a great alternative to the unknowns that could be lurking behind the label of a lesser sauce.


“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.”

“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.”
