I think most of us can agree that some of the best meals are those that have a savory, flavorful sauce thrown over them. In fact, my husband would like it if every meal I made was slathered in some sort of sauce. Sauces sort of top off a meal and give them that final kick, in my opinion.
A while back, I reviewed Pomi Tomatoes and , to this day, we still have them in our house! So when I found out that Pomi was launching an new line of all natural sauces, I was game for trying any of them!
From the four new flavors – Marinara, Pomodoro E Basilico, Vodka and Alfredo, I chose to add to my recipes the Vodka and Alfredo.
Initially, I thought I would have to make this elaborate meal and simmer the sauces for a while and really plan this out. I could not have been more wrong! All I had to do was open the package, pour it in a pot, add 2 tablespoons of water and let it heat.
So easy and wonderful for those busy days that need that quick meal fix that does not taste like it is out of a box!
So I took some chicken, browned it up, boiled some elbow macaroni and heated up my Pomi Vodka Sauce. When the chicken was brown and the noodles were done, I blended them all together and handed them to the ever picky family to see what they thought.
The vodka sauce has a tangy, very adult taste to it. It is a very light, almost transparent sauce that hid in the nooks and crannies of the noodles, bursting with a tart like sharp flavor that woke my taste buds and made the meal! I could taste the hint of Italian cheeses in the sauce so I did not even add Parmesan cheese! We really liked it!
A few nights later, I tackled the Alfredo sauce. Again, I was running late from school and events and wanted to put something good, that everyone would eat, on the table in less than 15 minutes!
I sliced a link of sausage, boiled a bag of angel hair pasta, and poured the rich, creamy yumminess of Pomi Alfredo Sauce in my pot. I added my 2 tablespoons of water and waited for everything to heat up. When the noodles were al dente, I threw it all together and served it up. Simple!
And what a HIT in my house! My kids even asked for seconds!
The sauce has an authentic flavor of Parmesan and Italian cheeses blended together with a hint of garlic and onions. it stuck to the noodles but was not overbearing like some Alfredos can be. It is actually a light flavor which is nice and – clean – almost flavor and did not have that oily feel that I am used to. We really enjoyed it and I know it is on my menu for another meal soon!
