New pasta sauce tried...

Prego has some interesting flavors.  I was looking for a simple red sauce with some Italian sausage in it, to go into a tortellini pasta bake.*  Found some, but right next to it was a bacon provolone red sauce.  Odysseus expressed a distinct preference for that, so that was what we got.

It was...good.  Not great, but good.  Very, very rich--too rich to go well with tortellini. 

I can, however, see how it would be good over a breaded chicken patty, with a mozzarella or a slice of provolone melted over the top. 

We probably won't be getting that one again. 

*For the tortellini version of pasta bake, you get the 12 oz bag of the dry pasta, and bake it for 40 minutes, not 30, like you'd do with plain, unfilled pasta.  It'll have a little more sauce to it than a full pound of pasta, but it's a little better, in my opinion, especially if you have bread.


  1. Interesting. Might have to look for that one.

    1. It was tasty, but too heavy for what we like to use it for. And it's almost enough to make me sick from how rich it is.
