PRODUCT: Fusion Marinara Sauce

Fusion cuisine combines ingredients from different food cultures for a new take on the ingredients and the recipes themselves.

In the case of Dave’s Gourmet Masala Marinara pasta sauce, the result is a delightful fusion of Italy and Southeast Asia.

Marinara is the classic Italian tomato sauce served with spaghetti and meatballs, atop pizza, veal and chicken Parmigiana, and as a dipper with fried zucchini and mozzarella sticks. A good sauce will be made from lush tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, onions and oregano.

Masala is the Hindi word for a mixture of spices.*

*While “masala” is an Indian word, the predominant flavors are both Indian and Thai.

Dave’s Gourmet uses a base of tomatoes and tomato paste, seasoned with southern Asian flavors including coconut milk, garlic, ginger, lime leaf, lime juice, lemongrass, onions, Indian spices and vinegar, among other ingredients. Evaporated cane juice is listed as an ingredient, but thankfully, there’s no prominent sugar flavor.

The sauce is versatile, pairing well with chicken, lamb, pasta, pork, rice, seafood and vegetables.

We also tasted Dave’s Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce, the first sauce we’ve come across made from squash. If you’re a butternut squash fan (we are!), try it and let us know what you think.

While it provided an interesting change of pace, THE NIBBLE tasting team wasn’t keen on the change—and we don’t know why. We really enjoy pumpkin ravioli, where the squash is inside of the pasta. So why didn’t we like a purée of squash atop our pasta?

We have no idea. We’re going to get another jar and try it as a sauce for chicken and fish.
