Review of Francesco Rinaldi Pasta Sauces

I made quite a few batches of pasta sauce from my garden this year.  Canning it, however, just didn't happen.  It's simply easier -- in some cases -- to reach into my pantry and pull out a good jar of flavorful sauce to put on my pasta!

Francesco Rinaldi is a name I was familiar with but hadn't tried.  They sent me some sauces to review, and, I must admit, I was surprised by the freshness!  I typically do not like cream sauces from a jar (they are too cheesy or fake tasting).  The Four Cheese Alfredo, however, was a delicious topping for my cheese ravioli, and I added some seared crab meat and grilled shrimp for even more flavor!

Here is the Tomato, Garlic, and Onion Chunky Red Sauce over a quick refrigerator tortellini.  It was thick and really stuck to the pasta well.  We had a bunch in the bottom of the jar that would not come out -- it was that thick.  You'll want to scrape what you can out with a spatula!

The sauces come in a variety of flavors, including:
  • Tomato Basil 
  • Garden Combo
  • Mushroom/Pepper
  • Tomato, Garlic & Onion
  • 3 Cheese
  • Sweet Tomato
  • 4 Cheese Alfredo
  • Alfredo
  • Roasted Garlic Alfredo
