Testing out a range of tomato-based sauces can be tough... once you have run through the gamut of uses with one, it's a bit hard to be unique but I decided to try a dish I haven't made in years - beef pasta bake. Basically, a savoury mince but "wetter" mixed with grated cheddar cheese, par-cooked pasta, all tipped into a casserole dish and topped with more cheese, then baked until the pasta has soaked up the remaining liquid. Takes maybe 20 minutes to prepare, then an hour in the over on a medium-high heat to avoid boiling all the water away before the pasta is cooked.
The results were... incredible. I normally make quite an elaborate sauce for the mince, but this time I simply up-ended the entire 500ml pouch into the browned mince and half an onion, diced... brought it up to a heavy simmer while the pasta par-boiled, then dropped the whole lot into the casserole dish and gave it a stir, dropped the cheese on top and into the over for 45 minutes.
Even fussy-eater Mr8 gobbled down a bowl full for dinner, and *ASKED* for some leftovers for lunch the next day. I swear, if Cthulhu, The Kraken and Coyote the Trickster God had knocked on the door asking if I had welcomed a supernatural saviour into my heart, I could not have been more surprised. I mean, that is some really out-there unheard-of happenings! (In case you haven't read any other reviews of mine, he's a really fussy eater and doesn't like anything remotely spicy, especially chilli and garlic.)
Overall, a wonderful sauce that makes some complicated meals suddenly simple to prepare. This sauce would be equally amazing as part of nachos too I think, because of the high garlic and mild chilli levels. Well worth a try, if you can get your mitts on some - this is batch-made so there is a limited supply and because it's getting very popular, you may sometimes come across situations where there may be a bit of a wait before the next batch is ready for sale.
Random listing from 'Food'...
These salmon pockets taste so good! Enjoy the classic French taste of salmon, zesty lemon, olive oil and herbs all gently and slowly cooked to lock in the flavour.
They are ready to eat so are ideal for picnics and other occasions when you want to have good food with the minimum of fuss. These pockets are low in sugar, high in protein, and a good source of omega-3.
