Product Review: Archer Farm’s Pomodoro Pasta Sauce
Back in January, I raved about Archer Farm’s Arrabbiata Sauce, as well as their Imported Italian Pasta. Well unfortunately, I recently had the exact opposite experience with another of their flavors: the Pomodoro Sauce. I was at Target last week planning to make my mama’s chicken cacciatore recipe for dinner, and thought I’d pick up a jar of the Arrabiata. Unfortunately, they was out of it… which prompted me to try the Pomodoro instead. I knew that the Pomodoro wouldn’t be nearly as flavorful and spicy as the Arrabiata, and that’s fine. But what I didn’t anticipate was how bland and flavorless the Pomodoro would be! Seriously, this is probably the worst sauce I’ve ever had! Totally tasteless, and even devoid of tomato flavor! I was able to “save” the dish with the liberal addition of spices, red pepper, and even some wine, but I will NOT be buying this sauce again.
