One of the easiest and most satisfying meals to make for the family is spaghetti and meatballs. Most people would argue that a homemade tomato sauce is the best choice for this meal. However, the time it takes to cook as well as the expense of the ingredients does not always make this possible. On those busy and hectic nights when cooking a pot of sauce from scratch is just not going to happen, I often reach for Reggano Mushroom Pasta Sauce.
This pasta sauce definitely jumped out at me from the shelf. The front of the jar has a very enticing picture of juicy red tomatoes and tons of tasty looking mushrooms. Both my husband and I love adding mushrooms to every dish possible so we were definitely interested in trying this product from the first time we saw it. This pasta sauce costs only $1.79 for a one pound jar which is definitely very food budget friendly.
One half cup of Reggano Mushroom Pasta sauce contains only ninety calories. There is two point five grams of Total Fat in this serving size with no Saturated or Trans Fat. There is also no Cholesterol in this pasta sauce which is definitely a positive. A downside to this product is that each half cup contains five hundred and fifty milligrams of Sodium. This represents twenty three percent of the daily recommended value. Those consumers who follow a low Sodium diet should take this into consideration when purchasing this product. There is also thirteen grams of Total Carbohydrate, two grams of Dietary Fiber and ten grams of Sugar contained in this jarred sauce. On the plus side, half a cup of tomato sauce offers ten percent of Vitamin A, four percent of Vitamin C, two percent of Calcium and four percent of Iron.
Some of the ingredients in this jarred red sauce is tomato puree, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, sugar, salt, garlic, onion powder and other spices.
Preparation of this pasta sauce takes only minutes. After pouring the contents of the jar into a saucepan, the sauce should be heated on a medium high heat until the desired temperature is achieved. The product should be stirred occasionally to prevent sticking and to ensure it heats evenly.
I definitely give Reggano Mushroom Pasta Sauce a full five star food rating. It is rich and thick and extremely flavorful. There is a rich tomato flavor and the amount of spice is just perfect. It is definitely not bland, but is not too zesty which my children appreciate. The thickness makes it wonderful for making homemade miniature pizza too. This is one pasta sauce that is low on price, but high on quality. I highly recommend this terrific product to all.
