If there’s one thing that’s a staple in my pantry, it’s a good red sauce. I like to use it in all sorts of recipes, from pasta to meatballs to chili to fish stew. Tomato based recipes are some of my favorite. Recently I tried Dave’s Gourmet Roasted Garlic and Sweet Basil Pasta Sauce and really enjoyed it. The sauce is rich, flavorful and chunky. I had houseguests arriving, so I decided to make a large batch of homemade meatballs. Dave’s Gourmet sauce was perfect with the meatballs! I loved the texture and delicious flavor. My kitchen helper and guests all loved the meatballs and sauce.

Roasted Garlic and Sweet Basil Pasta Sauce: Fire-roasting garlic brings out its natural sugars, and with that we combine aromatic sweet basil and ripe organic tomatoes. Complementing these flavors we add onions, carrots, and extra virgin olive oil for a bright, mouth-watering sauce that tastes like it’s right out of the garden. Not spicy.
Total Insanity Hot Sauce: Winner of the National Fiery Food Challenge and featured on the Food Network, this super-hot sauce delivers the heat and packs in the flavor with robust garlic and citrusy lime. Heat Level: Insanely Hot.
Dave started out with a hot sauce that started as a joke. Dave owned a Mexican restaurant in College Park, Maryland called Burrito Madness. He needed a way to drive late-night unruly customers from his business so he started serving them a hot sauce. He kept making his provocative sauce hotter and hotter. The answer to his late-night problems was oleoresin capsicum, not coincidentally the debilitating ingredient in pepper spray. Dave’s hot sauce developed a cult following and turned into business. Dave brought it to the National Fiery Food Show in 1993 but was banned from the show because, as Dave describes it, “some guy had a minor respiratory problem.”
That hot sauce is now called Insanity Sauce and Dave’s Gourmet has worked since 1993 to save the world from blandness and banality. Now Dave’s makes hot sauces for those of us who can’t handle extreme heat and award winning pasta sauces too.
