Hello, Nello’s Sauce


Nello's Sauce

Top your spaghetti with a local, small-batch sauce made from scratch with fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes.

The brainchild of Neal “Nello” McTighe, Nello’s Sauce began in 2010 in Raleigh after he decided to share his love of Italy and Italian food with the world. After selling the first jar in 2011, Nello’s has grown to become a leading tomato sauce company.

The sauce is made from simple ingredients, so it’s naturally vegan and gluten-free, and it has no added sugar and much less salt than similar products. It’s a great source of vitamins A and C, and comes in 25-ounce and 14-ounce jars.

Learn more about the company and where to buy Nello’s Sauce at nellositaly.com.

Editor’s Note: Nello’s Sauce has recently rebranded as Nellino’s Sauce Co. Read more about the name change at nellinos.com.

    Would love to receive a free sample. My husband & have always used Prego. My husband has said for a long time how he would like to make some sauce from scratch. But who has the time anymore. If this is something we like, we know it would be much healthier & would be purchasing it instead.

    Thank you!

    My wife and I enjoy reading North Carolina Field and Family. We feel NC Field and Family would only have the very best products advertised in their magazine so Nello’s sauce must be great and we can hardly wait to try it on our pasta!

    My favorite local product would be the sweet potatoes grown in NC. They’re so good and you can make so many tasty dishes from them.
