Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Marinara from Tuscany Review

My favorite tomato sauce from Costco has always been the Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce but this Kirkland Signature Organic Marinara from Tuscany may be my new favorite! The sauce is made in Italy from Tuscan grown tomatoes and Toscano PGI extra virgin olive oil. Find out the many reasons why I love this marinara below!

Other sauces from Costco I’ve tried and love are the KFI Butter Chicken Sauce, Bulls-Eye Barbecue Sauce, Don Pancho Cilantro Lime Crema, Culinary Treasures Jalapeno Lime Aioli and the Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame & Marinade.

Location in Store

This is available in both the USA and Canada! I bought it here in Canada and found it in the aisle with the dry pasta and other sauces. The item number is 1468460.

Taste

I tried the marinara sauce with cannelloni and I absolutely loved it. This is a delicious sauce. It tastes so fresh, like a homemade sauce used from fresh garden tomatoes. It’s not too salty and I love that it’s not sweet.

Ready to try!

There are chunks of fresh tomatoes in the sauce and you can taste the flavors of the onions and basil ever so slightly. It’s an effortless, high-quality tasting sauce and I think I like it just as much as Rao’s Marinara Sauce.

Such a delicious marinara sauce!

Cost

The three 650 ml jars cost $11.99 Canadian at Costco, which is cheaper than Rao’s.

Convenience

Despite the sauce being organic the best-before date is still really long, we bought it in March 2024 and the expiry date is August 2027. The jars are smaller than Rao’s, 660 milliliters for the Kirkland and 770 milliliters for the Rao’s. I prefer the smaller jars because I find the Rao’s jars make a ton of sauce that I usually don’t use up.

This is amazing as a pasta sauce, and it could be great as a pizza sauce, I think would also be delicious as a dipping sauce for bread or breadsticks. The jar recommends refrigerating the sauce after opening and consuming it within five days.

Calories

A 1/2 cup serving of sauce contains 40 calories, one gram of fat, six grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, five grams of sugar and 260 milligrams of sodium. There isn’t any added sugar in the sauce, it’s natural sugar from the tomatoes and carrots.

Nutrition facts.

The sauce is low in carbohydrates and has less fat, calories and sodium in comparison to a half-cup serving or Rao’s.

Ingredients

I absolutely love that only six ingredients are listed, and all of them are organic aside from the sea salt. The sauce is a product of Italy and does not contain any gluten, dairy, added sugar, preservatives or chemicals.

  1. I was totally surprised at how good this tasted as well! Raos was my fave but the quality and price point is definitely comparable. Good to use as a dip with mozzarella sticks too!

  2. I usually use Prego as I am older and live alone. Due to your review on my nextvtrip I am going to buy the sauce and give it a try. I will say that Prego taste seems to have too much sweetness a lot of times and I always have to add items for my own taste as sometimes it’s bland so we shall see.

  3. Thanks! I’m definitely going to try it. I’ve noticed it and wondered how it compares to the Victoria White Linen marinara sauce, my own personal fave (Rao was a close second). Maybe you would consider doing a review on that one?
    Cheers from Ontario 😋

  4. Tried the Kinder’s Chicken Sauce and really not a fan. Find it tastes like old salad dressing. Check this out and see what you think
