Tesco Brand Pasta

I like shopping at Tesco as I find they offer wide range of product brands and I can say it is almost complete. Tesco has lots of product in its Tesco own brand too which comes with a lower or lowest price compare with other brands. I noticed many groceries shoppers also like its store brand, as the product quality is not too bad and low in price. I myself also start using some Tesco brand things like toilet roll, rubbish bags, sugar, pasta and pasta sauce. I search for its pasta sauce after reading it from this mommy, who claims that it taste good. So I bought and try it together with Tesco brand Fusilli.

On Monday I cooked it as our lunch. Terry used to hate pasta and pasta sauce, but that day I try my luck to let him eat again see if he can accept it. Previously may be is because he found the cheese taste in the pasta, thats why he rejected it (he dislike plain cheese slices too at that time). This time I just cooked it as usual way without any cheese. He was happy when seeing his lunch served with noodle. Upon giving the first few spoon, he don't want to chew and keep it in his mouth. After few small spoons and bribe with raisin, he able to continue and finish his bowl giving me an "uuummm..."

The Tesco brand pasta and pasta sauce is one of the few products under the Tesco UK Imported Range. If I'm not mistaken there are 3 types of pasta sauce. I choose the one Light Choices as its low fat and low sugar. In the sauce it also mix in with chunky tomato, garlic, celery and herbs. So far, I found it taste better than San Remo spaghetti and Prego paste sauce.

My pasta preparation is simple, boil the pasta till soft with anchovies soup with a dash of salt and minced meat cook with pasta sauce. In 30-35 minutes, the hot pasta is ready. I personally like the pasta top with cheddar cheese.

I am one of those that are reluctant to use house brands . dunno why. But I think I shd start, things are getting expensive and if the house brands do the same job, why not.

Yummy, I like pasta too. For me, I also dislike cheese in it.

So Terry likes to eat raisin? I think it is a good snack coz it helps bowel movement.

Not only the pasta sauce, I like many things produced by Tesco from panty liners to instant coffee, digestive biscuits, groundnuts, detergent, etc. Cheap and good, really value for money :)
