The Nutritionist Reviews: Francesco Rinaldi Review and Giveaway

Francesco Rinaldi Review and Giveaway

Francesco Rinaldi is a company that makes all kinds of delicious pasta sauces. I am a huge pasta fan and love trying new brands.  For review, I was sent the Tomato & Basil pasta sauce and the Spicy Marinara pasta sauce from the To Be Healthy line.  These sauces are fortified with DHA Omega 3 which is very healthy. Also, the ingredient list is short and simple.  Each sauce that I received has only 60-70 calories which is usually what I look for when I purchase a sauce.

The other night, I made thin whole wheat spaghetti for dinner with the Spicy Marinara sauce.  Recently, I learned a tip from Food Network Magazine to cook your pasta until it needs one more minute to cook.  Then drain it mostly but leave a little bit of the cooking water.  Add your pasta sauce and cook a few more minutes.  This trick helps so that the sauce really sticks to the pasta and in this case, it really did the trick! I loved the taste of this sauce. It was quite spicy and very flavorful.  I added a tiny but of parmesan cheese to the top and it made for the perfect dinner. My husband really liked it also.  Especially due to the healthiness of the sauce, I would recommend buying it to others.

Giveaway
The giveaway will be for free product coupons for Francesco Rinaldi pasta sauce to 2 lucky winners.  The giveaway is open until Midnight on Tuesday May 24th. Winner will be chosen on Wednesday May 25th using Random.org. The winner will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.
