Gravy to go

Dante & Luigi's has been a Philadelphia landmark for 109 years. Now you can savor the restaurant's homemade Italian tomato sauces at home.

Their traditional Italian "gravy" - Sugo di Pasta - has the full-bodied taste and texture born of an Italian grandmother's recipe. The lighter, basic marinara is seasoned with onions, garlic and basil. Both sauces are bottled fresh daily in a size ample for family meals.

Dante & Luigi's pasta sauces, 32-ounce jars: $8 to $12; At Dante & Luigi's, 762 S. 10th St., Philadelphia, or www.danteandluigis.com. - M.M.
