A little Food Discovery

One of my staple meals is whole grain pasta with tomato sauce and fresh spinach. Every once in a while I pick up a new sauce flavor at the grocery store. Last week I tried Bertolli's Tomato & Basil. For a while I had been getting their Five Cheese sauce but thought maybe I was overdoing the cheese thing. (Note: my favorite things are cheese and nuts.) Even with a cheese-included sauce I would still usually throw on some grated Parmesan! At the same time though I hedged my bets and also picked up some Bertolli Alfredo sauce because well, I really didn't want the non-cheese sauce, I guess.

As it turns out, the Tomato & Basil just didn't do it for me so yesterday I added a bit of the Alfredo to it and...well YUM, the resulting tomato cream sauce was wonderful. So, I'm just putting that out there for anyone interested.

*The linked sauce names lead you to recipes that Bertolli has created using those particular sauces. Enjoy.

Sounds good; I am partial to Classico's Mushroom and Black Olive sauce, but also dabble in their Italian Sausage variety from time to time. My mom uses Prego Heart Healthy and swears by it.

I like Paul Newman's Sockarooni. I usually add an extra pinch of red pepper flakes to spice it up a little more.

Sounds tasty! I might try it. said...

Hey there!

Thanks for the recommendation!

These days...with food prices being what they are...not many are willing to buy both jars just as an experiment!

Your test-tasting has been helpful for those of us who are less brave!!

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
