Prego Launches First Vegan Meat Sauce

Yvonne O'Halloran

Vegan pasta lovers rejoice: a new sauce is hitting shelves, and it’s the perfect plant-based addition to your spaghetti.



Prego, one of the most popular brands of pasta sauce, has just launched its first line of vegan sauces. They are calling it Prego+ Plant Protein, and its first item is a meatless meat sauce. Similar to a bolognese sauce, the new sauce combines Prego’s traditional tomato sauce with soy-based crumbles.

Staying true to its name, this meaty sauce adds a healthy dose of protein: each serving will contain four grams.

Steve Siegal, Prego’s Vice President of Marketing, Meals & Sauces, spoke to VegNews about the new line of sauces. He shared that the line was created to give an extra dose of protein to anyone eating a plant-based diet: “We were inspired to create Prego+ Plant Protein for consumers who are increasingly integrating plant-based foods into their diets to get additional protein.”

Though this is Prego’s first officially vegan sauce, its Prego+ Plant Protein line isn’t their only vegan-friendly product. The brand’s other vegan sauces include Traditional, Roasted Garlic & Herb, Fresh Mushroom, and Tomato Basil, among others.

The sauce is currently being shipped out to distributors nationwide, and consumers can expect to spend $2.99 for a 24-ounce jar.
