Of the many brands and types of pasta sauce on the market, only one brand is truly unique.  The word unique means one of a kind and Silver Palate San Marzano Pasta Sauce varieties are outstanding in taste and texture.  You be the judge. The first ingredient is imported, whole San Marzano tomatoes.  Unlike most other tomatoes, domestic and Italian, the generic structure has never been modified.  Thus, the natural sugar goes into the fruit, not the leaves as it does in other tomatoes.  That’s why The Silver Palate adds no sugar.  They’re naturally sweet and lush.  Thus they never have to add tomato paste or sugar – only whole tomatoes.san marzano pasta sauce What a great pasta sauce – Silver Palate Super Premium!  Available in four varieties – Marinara, Tomato Basil, Low Sodium Marinara and Oreganata Marinara.
