Tesco Sausage & Tomato Pasta Snack
Disadvantages: Disgusting sticky sauce; Tasteless and gristly sausage
I had one of these Sausage & Tomato Pasta pots from Tesco the other day because I'm getting bored of their sandwiches but always get a bit hungry when I'm going the shopping. It was on offer this week and cost £1.50 a pot.
I wasn't very impressed with it though, even though the pasta has been cooked nice and has got a good texture the sauce is rank and there isn't much sausage mixed in. I counted about 10 mega thin slices of sausage and it's proper cheap gristly stuff, there's hardly any taste to it and if you got a piece that come with a lot of sauce on it then you won't be able to taste the sausage at all. It's also got a soft texture that makes the sausage feel majorly fake as you're chewing it.
Like I said the pasta is cooked good. It's a curly tube and collects the sauce, that would be brill news if the sauce was any good but it's disgusting so the less the better! It's a weird texture and is thick and sticky, it tastes of tomatoes but not fresh ones and I think it's got a bit of a powdery taste as well as you swallow it.
The sauce has got a bit of a herb taste as well but it's very overdone and made me feel a bit pukey after a few mouth fulls. It's like Tesco have done a kind of half decent cold pasta and then spoiled it by trying to make it taste more Italian or something but in a bad way because it doesn't taste like they know what they're doing! lol
I only ate half of it and gave the rest to my 2 year old sister, she ate it because I think it made her feel grown up eating the pasta out of the pot but I kept thinking to myself that I didn't think she was enjoying it really.
Not recommended.... nice cooked pasta but a crappy sauce and disgusting sausage. Forget it!!!
Summary: I'll Never Buy This Again!
