Amy’s Organic Pasta Sauces are the Next Best Thing to Homemade

0

My frugal side held out hope that Amy’s Organic Pasta Sauces would prove to be nothing special. After all, tomato sauce is tomato sauce, right?

For as long as I can remember I have picked up the special of the week, never paying more than $1-$2 for a good-sized jar of pasta sauce. I even scoffed at those foolish enough to spend upwards of $5 on such an inexpensive commodity. Yet, in the back of my mind I knew that Amy’s would somehow work their magic to make an ordinary food extraordinary.

As a consolation, this pasta sauce is so good, that few other ingredients need to be purchased to make this a fabulous meal.  Pasta, a side of broccoli, and there you have it; the rest is simply extra.  Honestly, now that we have tasted these fresh, bold, and flavorful pasta sauces, I don’t think it will be possible for my husband and I to return to those cheap jars of Classico.

Despite the lack of added sugars in Amy’s Organic Pasta Sauces, they each have a wonderful natural sweetness and aren’t the least bit acidic. I actually grabbed a spoon after one meal to “clean” out the jar!

But I will say that my household favored the salted varieties. The light in sodium versions were just a little too sweet for our taste buds. They needed a little more flavor contrast.

It’s getting harder to find pasta sauce made without dairy, additives, and sugar, but with extra-virgin olive oil (instead of soy or canola). Amy’s satisfies my whole wish list. And it tastes like good quality, from scratch pasta sauce too. I never feel guilty buying it … as long as it’s on sale!
