Dealer Joe’s Autumnal Harvest Alfredo Sauce

Trader Joe's Autumnal Harvest Alfredo Sauce

Ah, there’s nothing just like the savory flavors of fall…squash, pumpkin, spices. Every year, we get pleasure from all of them season lengthy, from the primary chilly autumn night till properly after Thanksgiving. They’re scrumptious by themselves or all combined collectively. Throw all of them in a white pasta sauce and what do you get?

A disappointing bland paste that’ll coat your dinner with unhappiness.

I am sorry, however that is simply how I really feel. Sonia was totally disenchanted, too. There’s little or no in the way in which of squash taste right here. Merely consuming an precise squash is much extra flavorful. Completely not one of the flavors come by the way in which they need to. Parmesan and gruyere cheeses? I imply, parmesan, pumpkin, and squash can all be delicate essences, however, I imply…they’re normally not THIS delicate.

This product is not even that creamy. It is not tremendous thick, it does not style like milk, cream, or cheese. It is only a medium-thin, easy pasta sauce with minuscule granules of butternut squash all through. They’re too small to be known as “items.” I imply, I do know the phrase “items” does not actually carry a measurement worth innately, however a time period like “bits” would appear a bit extra correct by some means.

Salt, shallot, parsley, nutmeg, and black pepper ought to yield one thing with a bit extra taste. We served it with brown rice pasta. We cleared our plates, however it was probably the most unsatisfying pasta dishes we have had in a very long time. Not that we would buy it once more, but when we had been ever to do that sauce sooner or later, it’d go along with spaghetti squash higher than any precise pasta. Not less than in that case, you will style squash.

This product shouldn’t be confused with the pleasant pink autumnal pasta sauce. That one’s as surprisingly good as this one is surprisingly not.

On the upside, there’s nothing notably offensive in regards to the style or texture of this sauce..It is not rancid or gag-worthy. They simply must amplify the flavors a hundred-fold. $4.99 is manner an excessive amount of for this tub, in my humble opinion. Two and a half stars from Sonia. Two from me.
