12 December 2011 First of all, what’s great about Dave is that he’s a wild and crazy guy with a passion for heat and outstanding flavor. He founded Dave’s Gourmet several years ago after debuting his Ultimate Insanity Hot Sauce. Yikes, is it ever hot! (And yes, we have it). From there, he went on to develop award winning pasta sauces. The secret to his success: fresh specialty ingredients, unique flavors, and a slightly insane perspective. Most of his products are organic, all are natural, gluten free, and contain no preservatives. You won’t find anything at the grocery that compares with these sauces.
Masala, award winner last year, is an innovative pasta sauce which pairs the western flavors of a classic marinara with the spices (masala), lime, and coconut flavors of the South Asian world. The result is a superb sauce that wows everyone who tastes it. Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce is made with squash ripened in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Paired with fresh garlic, onions, and roasted red pepper, the natural sweetness and delicate flavor of the butternut squash is enhanced. Spicy Heirloom Marinara will warm you on a cold Fairbanks night. This organic sauce combines spicy red peppers and vine ripened heirloom tomatoes for a fine flavor and some bite. It adds balance to pasta, pizza, chicken or fish. Wild Mushroom Pasta Sauce is a mushroom lover’s dream! It’s mostly mushrooms-wild porcini, buttery shiitake, and crimini with tomato sauce added. Extra hints of garlic, sage and sherry make for a perfect well-rounded flavor. Awesome!
Gift Idea Number Twelve: Pair a pasta sauce with any one of our pastas or pair the Spicy Marinara with our pizza drizzle for the pizza lover in your life. Want some real zing? Pair the Dave’s Spicy Marinara with our Pasta di Campofilone Chili Pepper Fettuccine. Delish!
