THAT’S ITALIAN with Guglielmo’s sauce!

THAT’S ITALIAN! It’s an old saying that they use when describing authentic food made in Italy. Like most people I never knew what this truly meant until I got older, even though my grandfather on my mothers side came straight from Rome, Italy. To me all food that even resembled Italian culture was the same, especially pasta sauce. I remember going into the grocery store and buying the commercial kind off the shelve that had a name that sounded Italian. The problem was that it never tasted all that great and was barely thicker than water. As soon as you dumped it onto your plate it would run all over and never stuck to your food. Now that I think about it, I can’t believe that at one time we actually thought this watery processed junk even resembled pasta sauce in the slightest bit.

Guglielmo’s pasta sauce is authentic

That was then and this is now. I’ve learned so much about pasta sauce over the years even though I couldn’t cook up a pot of it even if I tried. My grandfather would probably either kick my butt, or give me a long lesson on how to cook authentic pasta sauce seeing he was a phenomenal cook, especially when creating real Italian dishes. Still I can appreciate a great pasta sauce, and the first time I truly did was when I was at my Aunt Rosies house. Aunt Rosie invited me in for dinner and offered me a plate of pasta. Assuming that it was just going to be the regular pasta and sauce I was use to, I automatically agreed with no high expectations. As soon as I smelled the aroma in the air my whole concept of real pasta sauce started to change. She spent hours simmering this home made sauce on the stove until it was cooked to perfection. The only thing that I remember being better than the aroma was the taste. It wasn’t watery like the inferior sauces that I’d been buying from the grocery stores. This sauce stuck to the food better than glue. In fact I wouldn’t have been surprised if it still stuck after turning the plate upside down. It was thick, rich, and you could taste the real tomatoes, seasonings and spices. Nothing was fake about this pasta sauce one bit.
