Cucina Antica took five SuperFoods, tomatoes, fresh spinach, extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic and black pepper, and put them together in this fabulous sauce. They also added a little basil, salt and white pepper to round out all the flavors. And just as you would make it if you had the time, you won’t find any added sugar, additives or preservatives in it.
Cucina Antica uses Italian San Marzano tomatoes as the base of this sauce because they are naturally sweet and low acid. Tomatoes are a SuperFood for several reasons. They have a high carotenoid content, including lycopene, which is good for your skin, eyes, and overall health (especially for men). They are also a great source of vitamin C and polyphenols, and they have iron, copper and potassium too. It’s the synergy of this multitude of nutrients that makes tomatoes an all-star SuperFood.
Spinach is one of the top SuperFoods. It has many nutrients, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals and has demonstrated more health benefits than almost any other food. With spinach the list of spectacular nutrients is so long and impressive that the wide range of individual nutrients coupled with the unmatched synergy of those nutrients make it a top SuperFood.
This Fresh Spinach Marinara sauce is gluten free, non GMO and made in the USA. You can top your favorite pasta with this yummy sauce but you can also poach fish in it.
