The Tesco Tomato & Mascarpone Pasta Sauce is made from mascapone cheese which is blended with fresh tomatoes to create a very creamy pasta sauce. We used this in the same way that we usually use a pasta sauce: we quickly fry up some onions, peppers, mushrooms, or whatever else we have that’s suitable, then add the sauce and the cooked pasta. This made for a hearty, quick family meal packed with vegetables. It’s was a very tasty sauce made a little bit more special by the creaminess of the mascapone.
At the weekend my husband cooked meatballs with pasta. He makes these quite regularly from a Jamie Oliver recipe and he used the Tesco Tomato & Vegetable Sauce for Meatballs with it. It was a very popular combination and the sauce complemented the meatballs nicely. In fact, they were so popular that my son has bagsied the leftovers for his dinner one night.
I often use pizza toppers when I make a homemade pizza. It’s something I tend to make with my son (and any visiting children) and I find that making my own dough (in the breadmaker), adding toppings and cooking the pizza is enough work for an after school dinner. Hence, using pizza toppers to provide a tasty tomato sauce is a useful time saver. Tesco offer a Tomato & Herb Pizza Topper and a Tesco Tomato & Garlic Pizza Topper, so you can ring the changes a little, or choose a sauce to match your other toppings.
