Pomi Pizza Sauce and Marinara Sauce

How many of you love Italian foods? I know I do! Today I am going to talk to all of you about the delicious tomato products by the great folks over at Pomi. These tomato products were introduced to the US marketplace back in 1982 and now millions of Americans use them in their own homes. The Pomi products are all imported from Italy and trust me, those Italians know their tomato products!

The company sent me several Pomi products to review for all of you and today, I am focusing on the Pomi Pizza Sauce and the Pomi Marinara Sauce.

Like most American families, we love Italian foods! Matter of fact, my husband is full Italian and his mother was born in Italy back in the 1930's, married and then moved over here to the states. My husband is pretty picky about the ingredients I use in Italian dishes, so were pretty excited to try out the Pomi products for all of you.

The first thing I want to say about the Pomi products is that I appreciate that they are not packaged in metal cans as I prefer to not use canned products. I love that their tomato products are packaged in easy-to-use cartons!
The Pomi Marinara Sauce is all-natural and ready-to-use straight from the carton. We decided to boil up some pasta and while that was cooking I heated up the marinara sauce in another pan with a tablespoon of olive oil added to it. Once everything was done cooking, we drained the pasta and mixed in the marinara sauce. Everything smelled so good but would this pass the taste test with my family? Yes it would! My 50 year old husband, 27 year old daughter, 3 year old granddaughter and myself...gobbled up every last bite!

I have made homemade pasta sauces from scratch many times and this marinara sauce tasted like I had simmered it all day long! It was fresh tasting and very flavorful. My picky Italian husband gave it a big two-spoons up!
The next product we tried was the Pomi Pizza Sauce which is all-natural and packaged in an easy-to-use carton just like the marinara sauce. As soon as you popped open the carton you could smell something delicious inside!

We decided to make some homemade bagel pizzas using the pizza sauce and they were super delicious! We cut our bagels in half and then topped them with some pizza sauce and Mozzarella cheese. We placed them into our toaster oven and toasted/baked them for about 7 minutes at about 300 degrees. Once done my family dug in and chowed down! We love making simple things like this for lunch and these bagel pizzas were super good! The pizza sauce was fresh-tasting and very flavorful. Matter of fact, when I make bagel pizzas for my family again, I will ONLY use the Pomi Pizza Sauce because my entire family raved and raved about how good these pizzas were! Yummy!

So far...we are really loving the Pomi tomato products and next week we will be trying out 2 additional ones and sharing all of the information here on our Shakin N Bakin Foodie Blog with all of you. Stay tuned, part 2 of this review will be coming next week along with a great recipe from the folks over at Pomi!
