Sainsbury’s Spicy Tomato Pasta

These are large pieces of pasta, which has a “resize” effect- it makes the meal look quite small in the pan, because you can count the number of pasta tubes!

The pasta is overcooked, a horrible squelchy soft. I’ve had worse (think school canteen meals) but it could do with more bite, texture-wise. It could do with less bite spice-wise. It’s supposed to be spicy, but it ends up tasting unnatural, and definitely not Italian.

I didn’t have high hopes for this meal, so added some grated cheese, which made the whole meal much more palatable. However, even cheese can’t save this meal.
