The sauces will roll into Waitrose on 22 August (rsp: £2.75/590g)

Upmarket Italian brand Crosta & Mollica is launching a range of dried pastas and pasta sauces.

The dried pasta range includes spaghetti, rigatoni, fiorelli and tagliatelle (500g).

They were created with “the brightest golden durum wheat Italy has to offer, sourced from a specially selected group of dedicated growers”, said Crosta & Mollica.

Four sauces – Sugo al Pomodoro, Sugo alla Puttanesca, Sugo alla Norma, and Sugo all’Arrabbiata – will roll out (590g).

They contained naturally sun-sweetened Italian tomatoes, “picked at peak ripeness” with no added sugar and had been cooked over low temperatures to “intensify the deep aromatic flavours”.

All eight products will roll into Waitrose on 22 August (rsp: £2.75)

Providing “exceptional flavour and unrivalled quality”, they would help UK consumers “create the perfect Italian comfort dish in their own home”, said Crosta & Mollica.

These are the latest in a flurry of recent launches from the brand, which has debuted a gelato line, a new ‘luxury’ tiramisu, a range of frozen tartufi, and a plant-based, non-HFSS pizza over recent months.
