Sainsbury's Basics Chopped Tomatoes
Advantages: Cheap and Ideal
Disadvantages: Can be a little watery if not reduced a little
I have been buying Sainsbury's Basic Chopped Tinned Tomatoes now for quite a while, my partner is half Italian so we do a lot of Italian cooking in our house and tend to make Italian gravy quite a lot for different dishes such as lasagne, bolognese, cannelloni etc.. These tinned tomatoes are perfect for this as we leave our gravy slow cooking/reducing throughout the day, we have used more expensive tinned tomatoes in the past and to be honest you cant really tell the difference.
We have also used these tinned tomatoes for dishes which do not require slow cooking/reducing and although they are not as great for this as we tend to find them a little watery unless reduced a little we still tend to buy them as we still find that they are great value for what you get....simple but good.
I would not switch to using more expensive tinned tomatoes as there really is no need and some of the prices are ridiculous! I just think these are perfect for families especially when making up larger batch meals.
Summary: Simple but good
