The Mayor’s Own Marinara Sauce, benefitting Providence School Children. Proceeds from Buddy Cianci’s Own Marinara sauce are used to grant scholarships to deserving kids. The sauce itself is pretty tasty, too!
An old family recipe is a low-cal, no-cholesterol mix of tomatoes and lots of onions blended with garlic, olive oil, pepper, herbs, and carrots — the last, to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. It’s a bit thin for fans of chunky sauce (marinara isn’t supposed to be chunky, Cianci says)
