Or try Lyn’s Sugo sauce that is a mouth watering South Italy Mariana sauce.  Plus this is an original family recipe that combines tomatoes, onions and spices creating a perfect sauce. Like spicy like me?  Then you have to try Lyn’s Arrabbiata sauce, which is my favorite! Lyn’s website says that Arrabbiata is the Italian word for “angry” and that this zesty sauce it is an original family recipe with a divine blend of spicy tomatoes, onions, and red peppers creating an sauce with the perfect heat.

The Crimini Mushroom flavor is an original family recipe that is made of an unique blend of tomatoes, onions, Crimini Mushrooms, and spices creating a unique full of flavor perfect sauce.
