As you will know if you have read any of my other reviews, I am a bit of a fan of Asda. So you won't be surprised to find out that this is going to be a positive review! In our family we love pasta with tomato based sauces, spag bol, stews and so on, so some variety of tinned/carton tomatoes is a real storecupboard staple. However, there is a bit of a battle about it all. My husband you see, wonderful though he is in many respects, is a bit pernickity about tomato sauce. He doesn't like the bits. I love a chunky sauce. Hmmmm, what to do. Well, in the olden days (ie before I found a reasonably priced passata), I used to make a tomato sauce with tinned tomatoes, ... Read the complete review

Asdas Passatta is a great addition to all kinds of our regular meals, we use it in our home made lasagne, I also make pasta sauce out of it. It is basically tomato puree watered down and is a good starting ingredient for many a dish. I use this is spaghetti Bolognese with a tin of chopped tomatoes, it saves you having to squeeze the life out of a tube of puree as this goes a lot further I find The look? Like a blended and sieved red sauce, with a really fine chopped tomato within, but really smooth in texture Price? 40 pence for 500 grams means it is 5p more than a budget tin of chopped tomatoes but adds more flavour and there ...

Introduction --------------- Since i have been at university, i have been looking for all the different ways that you can possibly make pasta that little more interesting on a fairly low budget. Fortunately, with the finding of ASDA's passata range, you cannot really go wrong. The product --------------- Asda have a variety of different passata's which are all basically the same just in different packaging. Its basically dependant on what your after, if your using it all in one go, buy the box, if your not, buy the bottle. Simple. Anyway, it is a really good product to add to pasta to make a delicious pasta ... Read the complete review

Asda Passata - 500gm tetra pack, on average around 42p per pack. Passata is up there with the top ten store cupboard items for me. Whilst tinned tomatoes have their place, they are often bitter or sour. Passsata is the sweeter, more flavourful alternative. Traditional Italian sieved tomatoes are the main ingredient in the pack with a content of 99%, the other addition being citric acid. This is fantastic; so many other ranges contain high levels of salt. Obviously suitable for vegetarians, a quarter of the pack contains one of your five a day, always a good thing. I use passata in all manner of dishes, from the humble spag ... Read the complete review

I like to cook and I make a lot of things from scratch but a few short cuts can be quite handy when I am in a hurry. This passata is one of the short cuts that makes my life a lot easier. It can be used to create so many different recipes. I use it in bolognaise, lasagne, cottage pie, casseroles, the list goes on. It is just mashed up and sieved tomatoes, no seeds or skins. It is smooth and tasty, it doesn't seem like an amazing product but what can you expect from tomatoes?! This is great to have in the cupboard for make do days, to change a few ingredients into a meal. They always taste nice and add guts to a dish. Each carton contains 500g and costs a ...
