Crushed red pepper and chilis give traditional marinara a punchy spice. And we're about it. First Field knows exactly how to make this Italian favorite: with vine ripe tomatoes and fresh herbs.
First Field is dedicated to sustainable farming and sourcing practices. Their products are grown and harvested in the U.S., which helps them lower their carbon footprint.
Why we love it
If you're new to arrabiata, allow us to explain its magic for a moment. It's made with traditional tomato gravy (fresh tomatoes, garlic, and herbs) and given a spicy twist (crushed red pepper and chilis). First Field is the gold-standard in arrabiata sauce. Perhaps it's because they're based in New Jersey, where Italian culture is rich and goes back generations. Or maybe it's because they grow their own tomatoes and pick them when they're good and ripe. Either way, we're here for this spicy sauce that makes a show-stopping pasta.
How it does good

Love that subtle spiciness to this marinara sauce. It isn't too powerful, but definitely spicier to me than JarGoods Classic Spicy sauce. Very delicious!
