We, like most families, are very much trying to trim back on our spending budget. We are a family of five and our food spending had crept up to over £100 per week, much too much for us to sustain. As part of our efforts to trim the spend we set out a weekly menu plan and shop according to the meals we have planned for. In our store cupboard you will now find Sainsbury's Basics curry sauce, 9p a jar and Tesco Value Pasta Sauce, the latest I bought was 26p. I know I should make these sauces from scratch myself but time limitations caused by working full time mean that I need the ready prepared sauces to prepare the main meals, also I doubt very much if I could make these ..

I made my boyfriend pick this up instead of Dolmio one day, because it was either milk and tea or just milk - I was willing to sacrifice quality for just one more meal, and at 31p it really helped!! It comes in a glass jar with an image of some spaghetti Bolognese, pasta tubes were portrayed under the mince in sauce, and the 'Tesco Value' sticker around the middle of the jar. The gold lid popped off easily (didn't need all the banging and hurting that Dolmio jars demand!) ad it actually smelled really nice, a little bit like Original Dolmio. The ingredients didn't state there was any veg or anything extra in it, just 'pasta sauce' as it was put, so after ... Read the complete review

Want a quick simple pasta dish? Listen up! Money: For 440g of sauce you're looking at around 36p (last time I checked) pretty good hey? The sauce is sufficient for 2 people I reckon or one massive meal if you're feeling particularly peckish. Taste: The taste is so so to be honest. It's quite basily and the texture isn't amazing. I quite like some sort of substance to my pasta sauce and this is just perfectly smooth and is more of a paste. I think the sauce could be toned down wit the amount of spice they put in it though if I'm honest. It really hits the back of your throat and doesn't smell the greatest either. Ease: Easier than making ... Read the complete review

I don't shop in any one supermarket and tend to do small shops in each, usually going to a different one each week depending on the offers. I am not loyal to any shops, I go where the value and offers are, to save as much as I can. A great way of saving is by using the supermarkets basic brands. Tesco's is called Tesco Value and is a range of quite basic, essential products at a low price. the quality does differ but overall I find they are pretty good and try to use as much from this range as possible. One of the things I do buy on a regular basis is this pasta sauce. For just 36p you get a 440g jar which I find is easily enough for 3 to 4 ... Read the complete review

I have recently tried out the Tesco value jar of pasta sauce and this is my review. I have been trying out some of the items in the Tesco value range to see if I can save a few pence on my weekly shop and I have found that some of them are very good value but other items in the range are not that good and I will not get them again. The packaging is very plain but this is cos it is a Tesco value item and all of the items in the Tesco value range are basic products and you are paying only for the products and not for any fancy packaging. This does not bother me to much cos I am more concerned with the item and not what packet it comes in as this goes ... Read the complete review
