Sauces From Scratch
It’s week 4 of our Journey Through Italy and we’re savouring authentic flavours from Rome, Amatrice and the Amalfi coast. By the end of this week you’ll be converted to homemade sauces, making your own pasta sauce and pizza toppings with fresh tomatoes, not to mention the fresh zesty risotto you’ll be crafting to creamy perfection.
Learn to make fresh tomato sauce from scratch in Lazio
Hailing from the mountains, spaghetti all’Amatriciana is the epitome of Roman cuisine. The rich flavour of bacon lardons infuse the fresh San Marzanino tomato sauce, with a sprinkling of Italian hard cheese to transport you to the countryside of Lazio. Buon Appetitio!
“Italian cuisine is all about starting with naturally delicious ingredients, like fresh San Marzanino tomatoes. That means no tinned sauces in sight!” Jordan, Gousto Chef
Add Amatriciana Spaghetti with Bacon to your box and get everything you need to make your own authentic tomato sauce at home from scratch.
Savour the authentic flavour combo of lemon & seafood in Amalfi
Lemons are the most famous symbol of the Amalfi Coast, used both in their food and in the liquor Limoncello. You’ll be transported straight to Sorrento with this classic prawn and lemon risotto. Grated courgette and lemon zest lift the flavours of the dish, all topped off with lashings of Italian hard cheese.
“Lemon and seafood is a match made in Amalfi heaven. You’ll agree once you’ve tried the meaty jumbo prawns in this authentic lemon risotto.” Jordan, Gousto Chef

Discover a classic baked aubergine dish – on a pizza – in Rome
Based on the classic Sicilian baked dish Melanzane Alla Parmigiana, you’ll find this vegetarian pizza all over Rome. Starting with your own homemade San Marzanino tomato sauce, you’ll roast the aubergine until soft before piling your Roman-style crispy base pizza with mozzarella and Italian hard cheese.
“With the metropolitan bustle of Rome, it’s not surprising they take their favourite dishes on the go. Enjoy this delicious baked aubergine classic with a Roman twist – on a pizza!” Jordan, Gousto Chef
