Who doesn’t love a delicious plate of pasta paired with a glass of vino? Pasta is one of America’s best-loved meals. And a subscription to the Pasta and Sauce of the Month Club from Amazing Clubs is an ideal way to sample the very best pastas and sauces from Italy and the United States.
I love that the pastas and sauces that I received are vegetarian friendly so that those who want to serve a meat-free meal can do so. And those who love meat can easily add it. I also appreciate that my items were made with fresh, all-natural ingredients, ingredients that I could pronounce and recognize. Both the pastas and sauces were generous in size, too. My shipment included:
• Flying Noodle Sweet Roasted Red Pepper and Onion
• Local Folks Foods Tomato & Herb Marinara Pasta Sauce
• Flying Noodle Lemon Pepper Rotini
• Pastabilities Palm Tree Paradise Pasta
• Pasta & Sauce Newsletter
My package arrived from Amazing Clubs in perfect condition. The package included a newsletter with ideas for recipes and how to serve the pastas and sauces. However, the pastas and sauces themselves served as my inspiration.
I gave a squeee of delight when I first saw the Palm Tree Paradise Pasta. I never thought pasta could be so cute! This pasta was green and beige in color and in the shape of palm trees and sun symbols! I decided it was perfect for an upcoming summer potluck, and wouldn’t you know it, I was responsible for bringing a salad. I made a pasta salad, and it was delicious. Despite the delicate shape of the pasta, it held up very well in a pasta salad with bulky ingredients like olives, cherry tomatoes and roasted artichoke hearts. Needless to say, the pasta salad was the star of the potluck and many people asked where I had got the pasta. There’s just something inherently happy and joyful about eating mini-pasta palm trees.
I served the lemon pepper rotini with the Tomato and Herb Marinara. The scent of fresh Italian herbs hits you as soon as you open this jar of sauce made with all-natural ingredients like tomatoes and herbs. The pasta only took 3 minutes to cook, a sure sign that there are no preservatives and unwanted ingredients in this pasta. Just flour, lemon juice, pepper and water. The pasta had a delicate lemon flavor that perfectly complimented the rich tomato sauce. I shaved some slivers of fresh parmigiano reggiano on it and served it with a green salad and a glass of red wine. Simple and delicious!
The Sweet Roasted Red Pepper and Onion Sauce was my favorite sauce. I could taste the sun-ripened tomatoes and the mild sweetness of the roasted bell peppers and onions. Unlike grocery store sauces, these sauces are so delicious on their own that they don’t need a lot of other ingredients added to them. I enjoyed eating this sauce with some mushroom ravioli and more parmigiano. And more wine… I was sad when all of my items were gone!
With items of this caliber and quality, I would be quite happy to be a recipient of the Pasta and Sauce of the Month Club from Amazing Clubs.
