Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get Homestead Pasta Sauce with Meat & Mushroom in a can?

For generations, San Franciscans have enjoyed Homestead’s canned pasta sauce with meat and mushroom. Many locals have called it their “Sunday Gravy” so now we do, too! They have used the sauce straight out of the can as well as their base sauce to add their own special family ingredients. Unfortunately, the sauce in cans is no longer available. However, because if its popularity we have some options for you to get the same sauce that was in a can:

  • You can order Sunday Gravy Seasoning Packets (with the same ingredients we use) and make Homestead sauce in your own kitchen. For easy ordering go to the Place an Order page and we can mail the packets to you. The Sunday Gravy Seasoning packets are also available at our factory outlet store in South San Francisco.
  • We also have the Sunday Gravy in frozen 15oz. tubs. The Sunday Gravy Tubs are available at select retail stores, on-line on the place an order page, and at our factory outlet store in South San Francisco.
