Rustichella pasta sauce

Michael Kleinman | May 29, 2000 11:20 PM

Rustichella pasta sauce has changed! What used to be one of my favorite canned pasta sauces is totally different now, and not good. The texture has changed from bits of tomatoes to finely ground tomatoes. The taste of carrots is no longer comming through, and the overall flavor profile is closer to chef-boy-ardee than the incredible sauce it used to be. Hope its just a bad batch, being in the food business I'm used to inconsistency in product, but the texture change indicates that they changed their process. I've got 3 cases and they are all dissappointing. Wondering if any other Rustichella fans have experienced the same change. While on the subject of pasta sauce ,Timpones used to be better as well. At first the "Moms " label was the one to get. Then they changed the "Classic" and it was better than "Moms". Now none of it seems that great anymore.I still like Patsy's and used to like Conca'doro's Putanesca but can't find it anymore. Anyone know if they still make Conca'doro?
