Morrisons Value Spaghetti
Description: Manufacturer: Morrisons / Type: Pasta
Anyone who regularly reads my reviews (many thanks, I really appreciate it!) will know that I review a lot of products from the supermarket ranges which offer savings to customers by spending less on posh looking packaging. As we all know, the packaging just gets thrown away anyway so it makes sense not to spend extra on it.....and let's be honest, we all have better things to spend our hard earned cash on!
I have recently started buying items from the Morrison's Value range, whereas before, I admit that I passed it by, assuming that the cheap and nasty packaging meant that the product would also be cheap and nasty. I have been surprised to find that on many occasions, this isn't the case and the products have actually been great, unfortunately, this spaghetti isn't one of the better ones though.
A 410g cost me just £0.16 and like all products in the range, comes with plain white and yellow packaging. There is no pull off lid so you will need a tin opener to get into it.
The spaghetti can be warmed on the hob or in a microwave and is ready to serve within a few minutes. I like spaghetti on toast but this one is very watery and not nearly as appealing looking as some.
The tomato sauce is watery and not nearly rich enough. The actual pasta is okay, quite soft and chewy but the sauce lets it down and leaves it tasting insipid and bland.
Overall, this isn't a success and won't be featuring in my shopping basket any time soon. If you are looking for tasty spaghetti in tomato sauce, then best to avoid this one!
I am on a really tight budget this year, so I have started trying out a few of major supermarkets own brand foods. This is my favourite long spaghetti. I tend to eat it with Tomato and Herbs sause, Pesto, meatballs or mixed with rich tomato sauce on toast.This is a very good spahetti and tastes the same as more expensive brands.
Spaghetti comes in a long plastic pack with Morrisons logo, standard yellow packaging and surely does not look pretty but if you have a spaghetti tin you should absolutely forget about packaging. Spaghetti isn't at all sticky or excessively starchy - taste nice and i couldn't say there are any disadvantages.
Cook in a large pan in boiling water for 10 to 12 ( I recommend 15) minutes and then drain and serve with a sauce of your choice. Add a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of oil to keep it from sticking or toss it with some olive oil after you rinse. Don't forget about frequent stirring.
100% Durum wheat
The 500g pack of this basic spaghetti costs about 40p a pack - It's a reasonable price for a basic and versatile foodstuff! Why pay more?
I found it to be great value of money and will certainly buy again.
