Emeril’s All Natural Vodka Sauce (Pasta Sauce)
  • Although it still seems to have a bit too much tanginess to it, as is the problem with most store-bought sauces, it has good flavor and it's not too expensive
  • Emeril's sauces are a bit pricier than other pasta sauces, but I really recommend purchasing them over other, cheaper brands
  • I think what I like most about this sauce is the consistency
  • There's also a few small tomato chunks throughout the sauce, but not so much that I feel like I'm just eating tomatoes (as is the case with Prego, in my opinion)
  • In my experience, it typically comes from not cooking the sauce long enough, so I have tried simmering the sauce for a while before serving it with pasta, but it doesn't seem to do too much good

      I’m not a big fan of store-bought pasta sauce, but this is one of my favorites. Although it still seems to have a bit too much tanginess to it, as is the problem with most store-bought sauces, it has good flavor and it’s not too expensive.

      Emeril’s sauces are a bit pricier than other pasta sauces, but I really recommend purchasing them over other, cheaper brands. The taste and consistency are much better, and the price is only about a dollar or


      two more than most other brands.

      I think what I like most about this sauce is the consistency. There is enough thickness to this sauce that it is full and almost creamy for a tomato sauce, but it isn’t necessarily chunky. There’s also a few small tomato chunks throughout the sauce, but not so much that I feel like I’m just eating tomatoes (as is the case with Prego, in my opinion.) It’s also not too watered down, and if you let the sauce simmer in a pot for a bit, it develops a really rich consistency.

      The taste of this sauce is also much better than most sauces, but I don’t know that it really tastes like a typical vodka sauce. It’s definitely not a true marinara sauce, but I think it is much closer to a marinara than a vodka, lacking the full flavor of a vodka sauce. There is a nice sweetness to balance out the tang of the tomatoes, but ...

      I don’t think it’s enough to make it a really rich and satisfying sauce. That is where I find my biggest fault with Emeril’s sauce: despite the higher price and big name chef on the label, there is still a persistent bitterness to the sauce that seems present in all bottled tomato sauces. In my experience, it typically comes from not cooking the sauce long enough, so I have tried simmering the sauce for a while before serving it with pasta, but it doesn’t seem to do too much good. However, it’s one of the less tangy tomato sauces I’ve ever tried.

      Overall, I will continue buying Emeril’s Vodka Sauce as a quick red sauce to have on hand when I don’t have time to make my own. Although I prefer mixing it with some sort of cream sauce to mellow the tanginess, I still find it to be a good sauce that I would recommend to others who don’t mind paying a little extra.
