Cucina & Amore Arrabbiata Pasta SaucePosted: July 28, 2011 | Author: admin | Filed under: Food Items, Grocery Outlet | Tags: pasta sauce | Leave a comment »
I got this pasta sauce at Grocery Outlet ($2 for a 17.6 oz box) because I was looking for a higher-quality pasta sauce to go with a dish I was making for dinner. This sauce, made in Italy, contains all natural ingredients: tomatoes, tomato paste, sweet red peppers, evoo, anchovy paste, salt, parsley, garlic, sugar and chili powder. The results is a very nice and fresh tasting sauce, with a strong (but pleasant) red pepper flavor. My daughter found the sauce too sour, and I have to agree with her though that wasn’t a problem with me. It didn’t go well with the dish I made, the flavor of the sauce is too strong to mix in with other ingredients, but I think it’d be pleasant enough by itself. At $2 for basically 2-cups worth of sauce it’s a pretty expensive for a place like Grocery Outlet, but I think it’s worth it.
Note, because the sauce comes in a box rather than a jar, you can’t actually reseal it so plan to use it quickly.
