Bertolli d’Italia – which translates to “Bertolli of Italy” – is a line of red and white sauces, made in Italy, that elevate the at-home culinary experience and bring the flavors of Italy right to your home kitchen.



Authentic and delicious sauces made in Italy – including two NEW white sauces –
take home chefs on a culinary journey

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. /PRNewswire/ — Steeped in 150 years of authentic Italian culinary tradition and technique, the Bertolli® d’Italia brand of sauces has been expanded with two new delicious white-sauce varieties – Cacio e Pepe and Alfredo with White Wine. Bertolli d’Italia – which translates to “Bertolli of Italy” – is a line of red and white sauces, made in Italy, that elevate the at-home culinary experience and bring the flavors of Italy right to your home kitchen. All six sauce varieties are now available at select grocery and mass retailers nationwide.

Launched in 2021 during the pandemic when people were cooking at home more than ever and looking for ways to elevate their meals with premium, yet approachable, grocery items, the Bertolli d’Italia sauce line meets this growing consumer need at an accessible price point. Using tomatoes vine-ripened under the Italian sun, finely aged Italian cheeses, fresh cream and Mediterranean olive oil, Bertolli d’Italia sauces help home chefs create classic Italian staples through a bounty of premium ingredients.

The new Cacio e Pepe (meaning “cheese and pepper”) sauce is an Italian classic made with fresh cream, Pecorino Romano cheese PDO and black pepper (PDO or Protected Designation of Origin is used to designate cheeses from certain regions in Italy.) Alfredo with White Wine sauce is made with fresh cream and Parmigiano Reggiano PDO. In addition to these two new sauces, the Bertolli d’Italia line also includes four other mouth-watering sauces: MarinaraCreamy RosaAlfredo and Four Cheese Alfredo.

“Bertolli d’Italia sauce truly takes consumers on a culinary journey through the authentic and delicious dishes they can create right at home. The red and white sauces complement a range of recipes from classic Italian staples to contemporary dishes, allowing chefs of all levels to create simple, yet elevated meals,” said Megan Frank, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Mizkan America, Inc., maker of Bertolli sauces. “We’re especially pleased to deliver one of the first national launches of the Cacio e Pepe sauce variety to the retail channel – a sauce that is currently exploding on the U.S. restaurant scene.”

To inspire home chefs across America, Bertolli d’Italia worked with Chef Andrea Belfiore, Head Chef and Co-founder of NYC-based Evento!, to develop a recipe that highlights the unique flavor profile of Bertolli d’Italia Cacio e Pepe sauce. Utilizing toasted black peppercorns and topping with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano, home chefs can now create this elevated, on-trend dish that embodies the authentic flavors of Italy at home.


“Cacio e Pepe is one of my favorite, classic, Italian comfort foods. I hope home chefs will enjoy this simple, authentic recipe. The flavors truly bring me back home,” said Belfiore.

Bertolli d’Italia Sauces are available in 24.7-oz. and 16.9-oz. glass jars. Bertolli d’Italia red sauces retail for a suggested price of $3.99-$4.49 per 24.7-oz. glass jar and Bertolli d’Italia white sauces retail for a suggested price of $4.49-$5.19 per 16.9-oz. glass jar.

National Peanut Butter Day on January 24th recognizes an American staple in our pantries. Whether creamy or chunky, with chocolate or with jelly, peanut butter gets the recognition it deserves each year on this day. ( National Day Calendar)

Peanut butter is a food paste or spread made from grounddry-roasted peanuts. It commonly contains additional ingredients that modify the taste or texture, such as salt, sweeteners, or emulsifiers. Consumed in many countries, it is the most commonly used of the nut butters, a group that also includes cashew butter and almond butter (though peanuts are not nuts, peanut butter is culinarily considered a nut butter).

Peanut butter is a nutrient-rich food containing high levels of protein, several vitamins, and dietary minerals. It is typically served as a spread on bread, toast, or crackers, and used to make sandwiches (notably the peanut butter and jelly sandwich). It is also used in a number of breakfast dishes and desserts, such as granolasmoothiescrepescookiesbrownies, or croissants. (wikipedia)
