Giada's Savory Tomato Pasta Sauce
Regardless of how much I don't like the run of the mill sauces in the US, I for some reason have been on an eternal quest to find something that will be a good enough substitute for homemade sauce. I finally think I may have found it.
Target does all those designer exclusives, and apparently, they also do chef exclusives. Giada De Laurentiis - who has the Food Network show and is on the Today Show quite often - has an exclusive line of Italian sauces at Target.
I was in Target and noticed them on a random evening as I roamed the grocery section. As I looked them over with a dubious eye, I saw that one was called SAVORY tomato sauce. So, I decided to give it a go. The fact that it said savory really gave me hope, since so many of the US tomato sauces are so sweet.
I cooked it up one night recently when I was tired and didn't feel like making something from scratch. I was so delighted when I found myself, my mom and my husband all gobbling it down! It was pretty darn tasty and I was quite pleased.
If you are in a Target with grocery sometime soon, I encourage you to give the sauce a try. I'm not sure what Giada's other sauces are like, but I am going to give another type a try the next time I shop at Target. Kudos to Giada for sticking to her roots and creating something pretty authentic and very yummy.
