Tuesday Review: Barilla Toscana Tuscan Herb Pasta Sauce

 
    I don't normally buy jarred pasta sauces simply because my family likes the sauce I make better. What I DO like about jarred pasta sauce is the convenience. I had a coupon for Barilla Pasta Sauce and my local grocery store had a sale, so I picked up a couple of jars for under a dollar each. I figured that I could doctor it up beyond recognition and maybe my family would like it.

    I chose Barilla's new recipe- Tuscan Herb. It just sounded yummy. We like a meat sauce, so I also bought some mild Italian sausage to add to it. I bought a couple of cans of Italian diced tomatoes just in case I needed them (You know how some jarred pasta sauces have that... I don't know... Chef Boyardee-tomato flavor? I wanted to try to tone that down, if necessary.) I bought some cheese, because we love cheese on our pasta, and I already have a nice variety of herbs & spices to fix up a jar of sauce.

    I have to admit, when I opened the jar ant tasted the sauce to see what I had to work with, I was a bit disappointed. It was GOOD! Here I was, with my arsenal of extra ingredients, and I wasn't going to need to use most of them! Honestly, I could have used just the sauce in the jar, and that's it.  But, like I said, we like a meat sauce. I cooked up the Italian sausage and added 2 jars of the Barilla Toscana Tuscan Herb Pasta Sauce to it. I did add one small can of Italian diced tomatoes to it, but I could have done without. It tasted GREAT! Best of all, my family liked it too! It really didn't taste like a jarred sauce at all.

I like Barilla's sauces better than most. They don't taste as processed as some. Thanks for reviewing one I've never tried! :o)
