Organico Bello: Organic, Healthy & Delicious Italian Pasta Sauces



With so many tomato pasta sauces on the market, how do you find a sauce that stands apart from the others? After trying Organico Bello, we knew there was a story behind it.


The Beginning


Meet Chef Neil Fusco, the creator and force behind this delightful pasta sauce. Neil grew up on a small farm in southern Italy, where hard work was a part of everyday life. He was the eldest of five, the first-born son of Italian farmers who eventually immigrated to New York. Every morning he and his family rose with the sun and followed his mother on the mile-long trek to the family’s tomato fields. It was their job to pull out the weeds between the rows of tomato plants. Being the eldest child, Neil was also responsible for helping his mother cook. Early on, he learned that quality starts with simple, real ingredients. If his food wasn’t harvested from his family farm it came from neighbors, friends, or local markets.



In the 1970s, the Fusco family immigrated to the United States and settled in the Bronx, New York. One of Neil’s first jobs was in a pizza shop near Yankee Stadium. He went on to establish a restaurant, then later, he created Organico Bello Pasta Sauce. He has always felt that food does more than nourish the body. The sharing of food, perhaps more importantly, nourishes the soul, a nourishment that stays with us long after the meal has ended. His goal has been to offer a quality product that families feel good about sharing. This inspired him to start Organico Bello, a delicious pasta sauce made from organic tomatoes grown and harvested near his childhood home in Italy.


Simple Ingredients


Their sauces start with the tomatoes. Organic Southern Italian tomatoes are known for their sweet flavor and low acidity, and coveted for their firm pulp and deep red color. As Chef Neil likes to say, ‘If you start with a good tomato, you don’t need the sugar.’ Sugar is often used to mask an inferior tomato. If the tomato is not allowed to ripen on the vine, it doesn’t develop that sweet, low acidic flavor. Organico Bello tomatoes are picked at peak ripeness, capturing the tomatoes at their best flavor.



These attributes make them perfect for cooking. Their cooking method brings out the best in their tomatoes by simmering it just enough to enhance the integrity of the fruit. This maintains the impeccable flavor through heating, simmering, and even baking. Sauces are perfect for the home chef that wants to experiment with new recipes, like zucchini lasagna. The rich, delicious flavors of Organico Bello Spicy Marinara Sauce complement the earthy tones of the vegetables to create an amazing dish to be shared with family and friends. Organico Bello Tomato Basil Sauce makes an excellent base for tomato basil soup. Just add heavy cream and simmer to make a hearty soup on a cool night. Whatever the recipe, you can be confident that you are using good, simple ingredients.
