Passata is a form of tomato purée that has been passed through a sieve to remove the seeds and skins. It is therefore very smooth, and suitable for a number of uses where a finer purée is required.
Vorrei’s Passata is made from the famous San Marzano Napoli tomatoes from the fertile Campania region of Southern Italy and is a recognised ‘Slow Food’ product. Our supplier Agrigenus have been accredited with ‘Slow Food’ Presidium status for their commitment to practising small-scale and sustainable production of quality foods, as well as maintaining ethical cultivation and processing methods.
Napoli Passata is perfect for making a delicious smooth pasta sauce.
