The Monte Pollino Brand represents high quality at an excellent value. The assortment of authentic Italian pasta sauces are made with all natural ingredients and 100% Italian tomatoes. This sauce is made from tomatoes, parmigiano cheese, onions, cream, extra virgin olive oil, basil, garlic, and vodka. It gained popularity in the 1970s, when a variation won a national recipe contest in Italy. The vodka's function is to release flavors in the tomato that are normally inaccessible.
This pasta is the real deal. Produced in the Chieti Province of Abruzzo, the de-facto capital of quality pasta production, Giuseppe Cocco uses old world techniques and bronze die to extrude its pasta. This creates a slightly rough finish to the noodle, allowing it to cling perfectly to sauce.
