“ Brand: Knorr / Type: Sauces „
We first tried this product when it was on a buy one get one free offer. We enjoy sausage casserole but usually make our own, however, on seeing two of these jars for £1.69 I decided that this could be a cheap and convenient meal and would certainly be worth a try.
The jar itself comes as a 500g measurement and it specifies that the jar serves four hungry people. We followed the directions as recommended on the product and were disappointed to find that the sauce did not appear to go as far as it specified that it would. On the plus side, the sauce appeared to be of a good consistency, not too runny and not too thick with a mouth watering aroma So far, so good.
According to the jar, the sauce is flavoured with sage, onions and garlic, with carrots and swede. I have to agree that the sauce was well flavoured and could especially pick out the garlic and sage. We served this casserole with rice and found that there was a sufficient amount for all of us though a little more could have been nicer and I certainly disagree that the sauce would feed four hungry people. In general, I'm not a huge fan of convenience sauces but this one did taste good. On the negative side, I found that there were only a few chunks of carrot which we found to be disappointing leaving the casserole a little plain with just sauce and sausage. I like my casseroles to be filled with vegetables and yes although I could add my own vegetables, I don't think that there would be enough sauce to cover this.
*Value for money*
As part of a buy one get one free offer, the sauce was quite reasonably priced, however I find £1.69 for a single jar to be over priced. A bigger portioned alternative could be made with more vegetables and be just as tasty for around the same price if not less. If you cannot cook or do not have time then this could be an option for you but if you do have the knowledge and the time to do some chopping then making your own would be recommended. I have no intention of purchasing this sauce again, not because it was awful but simply for the fact that I think that it is not great value for money.
