Rose Romano’s Gourmet Topping and a Giveaway

Pasta is one of my family’s favorite meals. I mean, who doesn’t love pasta?!

I was recently sent a 4 jar gift pack of Rose Romano’s Gourmet Toppings to review.

Now, I am not a huge fan of jarred sauces. They have a place and you will often find them in my pantry, but I usually doctor them up. I add things to give them a more fresh flavor. And I often just prefer to make a quick sauce on my own instead of using a jar of sauce.

So, when I was sent the Rose Romano’s Toppings I was convinced that they would be just like any other jarred pasta type sauce that I had tried before, but I was wrong.

These sauce are like no sauces I have had before. The flavor was amazing. It was so flavorful and fresh tasting that I could not believe it came from a jar.

We loved the sauce just heated and poured over some pasta and sprinkled with some Parmesan cheese. The flavor was so good that we did not feel that it needed anything else added to it. We enjoyed this for lunch or a light dinner. It was so good!

We also used it as a pizza sauce on several different occasions and really enjoyed it. The first time I used it my husband did not know I was reviewing a product and he said, what did you use for the sauce on this, it is really good.

I used it several more times on pizza and we really enjoyed it. In fact, I found that all the pizza needed was a little sauce and a little cheese. The sauce had so much flavor that a simple cheese pizza was all you needed to make.

I also think this sauce/topping would be really good served over fish or chicken.

Now how would you like a chance to win a Rose Romano’s Gourmet Topping four jar gift pack?

Lynn's Kitchen Adventures


  1. Pasta is my go-to all the time, but I’m with you – – I usually doctor up a jarred sauce if I’m not making it from scratch.

  2. Pasta is definitely a staple around here – I keep pasta and sauce stocked in the pantry at all times because even when my family is really sick they will eat pasta!

    So needless to say I am always looking for new ideas and would love to try some new flavors!

  3. Cheryl Newton says

    I think these sauces would be too fancy to sit alongside my jars of mostly Ragu in my food storage!

  4. We eat pasta at least once a week and with kinds of different sauces. Thanks for a great recipe to add to the rotation!

  5. Hi Lynn. This sounds like a great giveaway and a great product. I think the sauce would go great with sautéed zucchini and onions as well as with pasta or pizza. Of course my little guy would love to dip any/all of his food in it too 😉

  6. Rebekah Shaver says

    Rose Romano’s sounds INCREDIBLE! I would LOVE to try it! 🙂

  11. looks yummy! we go through lots of pasta sauce at our house, would love to try a new one!

  12. Being a mom of 6, pasta and pizza are always on my menu! I love homemade sauce but rarely have the time to make it. So we usually end up with “doctored” can sauce. I would love to try this!!

  13. sounds like a great giveaway and a great product

  14. I’d love to win! My hubby actually prefers jarred sauces (so I probably haven’t hit on the right recipe yet). This would be awesome!

  17. Rick Schwartz says

    I’d also like to know how you made your pizza crust. I’ve always used pasta sauce as pizza sauce, but it’s been a while since I made my own crust.

  85. Christine says

    I am always looking for a fantastic sauce for pizza and pasta. I haven’t come along anything better than homemade and with having 4 boys, that gets done like…never. We are GF here, so any tasty sauce would be a “welcome” addition to our pantry- if it would make it that far 🙂

  93. I’ll start by saying I’m a total novice when it comes to all things involving cooking but I too feel the need to doctor up all the jarred sauces I’ve used to date. I’m excited for a chance to win this set so I can see just how great it tastes (and to not have to chop a lot of add-ins for an even quicker go-to meal)! Thanks for the chance Lynn!
