“ Brand: Asda / Type: Other Ready Meals „
During a trip to ASDA I was starting to feel hungry seeing all that food surround me I though I would just get some pasta in, it would be quick to make as soon as I get home. Looking down the aisle, I came across this ASDA Spaghetti with Tomato and Mozzarella Sauce in their Good for you range. It cost 58p when I purchased it but has gone down to 29p when I checked it on the ASDA website, which really is not that bad considering I really like this product as its tasty, something to fall back on when you want something simple and don't have energy or time to make a quick snack. It also seems to fill me up, I end up having to leave some of it because I really can't eat anymore, I feel full not because it's terrible. However it best to eat this hot/warm, soon as it get cold your tomato sauce is getting back to its terrible powder form then it does taste vile.
ASDA Spaghetti with Tomato and Mozzarella Sauce comes in a 120g packet. It is suitable for vegetarians, but contains gluten, wheat and milk. You can make this product in two ways either by microwave or on the hob. I think both methods take roughly the same time. I have made this on the hob every time, you empty the contents into a saucepan containing 350ml of boiling water and stir. Cook on moderate heat for 8 minutes. I think the big tip to give at this point is when you tip your contents into the saucepan just grab the spaghetti out first and then pour the powder in its not fun trying to save your powder from missing the saucepan completely and trying to get the spaghetti out at the same time.
Ok, so this is supposed to be tomato and mozzarella flavour, looking at the ingredient I noticed the 1.6% Mozzarella Cheese. I only found maybe 1 or 2 tiny, about 3mm cubed mozzarella pieces amongst a red and herby powder. That's very stingy, but I guess that's why they say it is low in fat.
The final product is fantastic, even thought there is no sign of the mozzarella (melted away) there was a nice tomato sauce coating the spaghetti beautifully, tasted good too, not salty like ready made meals are. This is definitely one to keep stored away in the cupboard and just make up with water. At 29p I say it's definitely worth it, a brilliant cheap lunch.
