Dolmio Stir-in Sweet Pepper
The 'Dolmio' range of stir in sauces are a very handy item for me to keep in my store cupboard because they make a very quick and tasty evening meal. This is great after a long day as I can not really be bothered to stand and cook from scratch every night and so this is a quick and easy method for making a tasty pasta dish.
The Dolmio stir in sauces come in a choice of flavourings such as a Carbonara sauce and a roasted vegetable sauce. They are all similar when they are sitting together on the supermarket shelf and they are quite eye catching as they are in brightly coloured packaging that is in colours such as yellow and green.
The outside of the packaging is a little cardboard cover and when you remove this there is a little plastic pot underneath. There is a silver foil lid on top of the pot and this is peeled off easily.
The cardboard cover tells me on the back that per 100g of this sauce = 100 calories.
The tubs of Dolmio stir in sauce feed two adults or if I am just having it myself I can get two nights dinners out of it. They are expensive and usually cost around £1.50 but compared to other ready made pasta sauces this brand is much tastier.
Inside the pot is the sauce - in this case I bought the 'Sweet Pepper' flavour. When I peel off the foil lid I can see that the sauce looks very thick and it has little lumps of vegetables in it. The colour is a bright red tomato based sauce and it looks as though there are little bits of herbs and perhaps onion as well as little bits of peppers through the sauce. It smells lovely and it looks really nice.
All I need to do is cook up a pot of pasta and then drain it then add the contents of this little plastic tub to the hot pasta. Then all I do is stir through the sauce until all of the pasta is coated nicely. I personally like a little parmesan cheese sprinkled on top but this is down to each taste so you may prefer the pasta plain.
So as you can see the Dolmio stir in pasta sauces prove to be a very quick and easy meal and it really needs very little effort or time. All you need to do is basically cook up a pot of pasta and then you have a tasty and satisfying evening meal.
I bought my Dolmio stir in sauce from Tesco and it cost me £1.34 but this tub did me for two dinners so it does not seem as expensive when you look at it like that.
Summary: A QUICK AND EASY MEAL
