I'm not crazy about this sauce. It doesn't taste to me like Andiamo's at all- and I've been there several times AND my brother used to work there! Andiamo's sauce is a bit sweeter, silkier, has more of a brothy, cosumme flavor, I'm quite certain has NO cumin, and there are no visible herbs in the finished product. So, in other words, this taste NOTHING like Andiamo's Zip Sauce, but it's still pretty decent, nonetheless.
