|MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Bertolli® brand, which has more than 150 years of rich culinary history, is proud to unveil Bertolli Rustic Cut™, a truly unique and taste-tempting line of pasta sauces that are full of hearty vegetables you can see and taste. Inspired by the simple goodness of Tuscan cooking, all four varieties of these chunky sauces can be found at grocers and mass retailers nationwide beginning this fall. New Bertolli Rustic Cut Sauces are destined to become family favorites because home cooks will see there’s no need to doctor them.
In keeping with the Bertolli brand’s tradition of “bringing Tuscany to your table,” the new sauces were created with premium ingredients like thick-cut veggies and aromatic herbs. Each jar is packed with an abundance of crisp chopped vegetables like peppers, onions and carrots, perfect for busy parents like Sean and Catherine Lowe from “The Bachelor” who need a quick solution for weeknight meals.
“Just like the Bertolli brand, I pride myself on my strong Italian roots. My dad taught me how to cook at a young age and growing up, it was an event to make and enjoy dinner with his side of the family. During Italian Heritage Month, it’s important for me to remember and celebrate that heritage,” said Catherine. “I’m so excited to pass it on to my one-year-old, Samuel, as he grows up!”
“At the Bertolli brand, we continue to take inspiration and pride from the Tuscan way of cooking as well as the rich Tuscan heritage passed down by our founder, Francesco Bertolli,” said Rebecca Smith, senior brand manager at Mizkan America, Inc., maker of Bertolli sauces. “That’s why Bertolli Rustic Cut Pasta Sauces contain NO artificial colors, NO artificial flavors and NO added sugar – giving consumers amazing flavors and texture inspired by the authentic tastes of Tuscany.”
The Bertolli name has been a staple of culinary authenticity since 1865. Today, more than 150 years later, the brand is still committed to bringing the simple goodness of the Tuscan technique to mealtime. “By using a few quality ingredients, cooked lightly with olive oil, to lock in layers of flavor, we craft delicious sauces that preserve the integrity of the ingredients in each and every jar,” added Smith.
