Pack on the pasta this fall, only without the added calories! While there are more kinds of tomato sauce to choose from than ever before on H-E-B shelves, H-E-B’s Cooking Connection recommends is Orti Di Calabria. Sourced directly from Italy, it’s authentic with fabulous flavors, and no added sugar. It’s as close to homemade as you can get!
The Ciao Italia celebration runs from October 2-15. Take a tour of Italy by way of your taste buds! Chef Jessica shared a handful of varietals…some with meat, some without, red sauce and white.
The Sicilian is chunky with more zest than your average sauce. Her favorite, the Arrabbiata, is known for its added spice. Orti Di Calabria’s Vodka Sauce is a creamy, rich offering that’s great for things like ravioli. Tomato & Basil is a fan favorite, as is the Amatriciana Sauce (with added pork) and the Bolognese Sauce (also meat-based).
H-E-B’s Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Salt is a staple in my panty, but this Borgo de’ Medici White Truffles Cream was a nice new find! Add it to half and half and try with any chicken or cream-based pasta.
Be sure to watch our short video above, as Chef Jessica whips up a quick and easy spaghetti using olive oil, fresh basil, tomatoes, our truffle salt and pepper. An easy dinner idea for the fam this week that takes little to no time at all!
