Recipideos are short videos, developed by Aurora, showing how to make easy Italian recipes. Keep an eye out (or follow the youtube channel) for future recipideos. January's recipideo was Pasta with Spicy Tuna Sauce. You can watch the video here:
Aurora kindly sent me a few of the products used in the recipe, so I could try them out myself.
I was particularly impressed with the diced tomatoes. They have 10 mg of sodium per 1/2 cup, this is far lower than the diced tomatoes in my cupboard (even the ones that claim that no salt is added).
The La Bomba, an antipasto spread, is something that I would likely never have noticed on my own (I'm generally a creature of habit who sticks to my staples when shopping). But I was pleasantly surprised by the nice spice it added to the dish and plan to incorporate it in future dishes.
The dish has an unexpected depth to it. Maybe this came from adding strained tomato. It was similar to the depth of flavour that comes from adding a wine reduction to your tomato sauce.
Definitely a winning dish!
But here's the exciting part...
Aurora has offered to send one of our readers the six ingredients you see, below:
