Frescobene is a female owned CT based company that sells super premium pasta sauces. Read more about how I used their sauce to create a chunky summer salsa!
When co-owners Lisa & Ann reached out to me to collaborate, I couldn’t have been more excited. Both women come from Italian backgrounds where family time was often centered around food (I can totally relate). Growing up Sunday dinners were huge & often included delicious Italian inspire meals!
Lisa & Ann created this line of sauces to make homemade meals more accessible to busy, modern day families. Each sauce is made with high quality ingredients & then frozen to make future meal prep easy and to maintain peak freshness. There are no added sugars, preservatives or citric acids in these sauces. You get that flavorful homemade sauce without spending hours making it.
Another great reason to support this small local business- they give back.
Frescobene donates a portion of their profits to Operation Hope. Operation Hope is a local organization that provides food, affordable housing options & support to those in need in the Connecticut area.

Ok back to the food!!
When it comes to recipe creation, thinking outside of the box was a goal for this collaboration & to also make something that would pair well with the summer sunshine! And that is how my Frescobene Chunky Amatriciana Salsa recipe was born.
The base of the Amatriciana sauce is tomato, onion & pancetta flavors.
It made perfect sense to make a summer salsa out of it! I just added some chopped veggies, a few spices & some fresh lime juice! The flavor of the Amatriciana sauce is AMAZING on it’s own (I had it over pasta & it was perfection) but it’s even more out of this world with some simple additions.
