Marinara sauce is something of a staple in most homes. More than just tomato sauce, it is generally made with tomatoes, garlic, onion and herbs. Legend tells us that it was first prepared in the 16th century and used by sailors on lengthy voyages because the acid content kept it from spoiling (there was no refrigeration yet). As a matter of fact, it has its roots in the expression, alla marinara, or sailor-style.

In 1924, Filomena Dell’Amore arrived in the United States and began to build her family. Like every good Italian mother, that meant feeding them healthy and nutritious foods, made with the best ingredients.


Dell’Amore began to bottle her signature marinara sauce in 1986, making it one of the early premium, authentic pasta sauces sold to the public.

Some of the staff of Olam Yehudi had the opportunity to try some of Dell’Amore sauces and found them to be superb. We used them for spaghetti and meatballs, for shakshuka and for homemade pizza. Our conclusion: The rich taste of Dell’Amore sauces makes each dish geshmack!

The following recipe came to us from Rachel Jacobs, who lives in Vermont and buys her sauce straight from the Della’Amore store. Mrs. Jacobs, a native Israeli, makes shakshuka for her family and only uses the Dell’Amore sauce as it is made from the best ingredients, contains very little sugar, low acid content and a very rich taste.



Pour 1 jar of Dell’amore tomato sauce into pan
Simmer on low flame until slightly bubbling
Crack 6-8 eggs and drop into sauce
