Q. I saw a recipe that called for 16 ounces of sugocasa. What is sugocasa?

A. Time to fire the recipe writer. SugoCasa is the brand name of a pasta sauce made by the Star company in Milan, Italy. It comes in four varieties — plain, herb, basil, and "Hot & Spicy." Its claim to fame is that it is made from fresh tomatoes.

From our online research, it appears that SugoCasa pasta sauces are widely available in Australia and the Netherlands (presumably also Italy). From your location in Virginia, you may just have to muddle through with another brand of pasta sauce, or make your own fresh — and only dream of what your food could taste like if you, like the prima-donna recipe writer, could scour the globe for the perfect bottled pasta sauce.
