Tesco Value Pasta in a Tomato and Onion Sauce

27 August 2013

Word of warning- takes an age to cook! I wanted a quick meal before my lecture, but this requires 15 minutes in the microwave- I had to return to it afterwards. Decent portion size, but the tomato sauce is a bit sweet, sickly, and bland. This tastes just like plain pasta with a little bit… [Read More]

Tesco Spaghetti Bolognese

26 July 2013

The mince has liquidated into the sauce, giving the sauce a vaguely brown colour. As ever, the spaghetti is soft. Tasty, filling.

Tesco Farfalle Pasta Carbonara

19 May 2013

Very oily. Looks very unappetising- one big splodgy mess. Made some very scary noises in the microwave. Admittedly, the little cubes of unidentifiable meat are quite pleasant. But the rest of it has a peculiar taste- as if the plastic packaging has burned and the fumes have been infused into the pasta. Not a tasty… [Read More]

Tesco Chicken, Garlic & Wine Pasta

12 September 2012

This was a real pain to cook- need to add milk, boiling water, and optional butter. Then it needed microwaving, which led to an explosion and about 15 minutes cleaning up the mess. So much for fast food! Nice taste of parsley and fairly creamy sauce. The tiny pieces of chicken, as opposed to just… [Read More]

Tesco Real Ale Beef Stew and Dumplings

03 July 2012

Meaty sauce. Pleasant but nothing special. Packed with meat and potatoes- good, hearty food. The dumplings are a bit disappointing- total lack of flavour, slightly too sticky. Still, they’re adequate, and there are two of them. Nicely cooked beef.

Tesco Everyday Value Meatballs

11 June 2012

A very soft, spongy texture, tasty enough, but soft even compared to Sainsbury’s basics. Has the texture of a custard slice. Tasty tomato sauce, though you can practically feel it clogging up your arteries as you eat. Dread to think what’s in these meatballs, but they too are tasty. 3*

Tesco Value Beans and Sausages

17 May 2012

Okay, so it’s a bit of a cheese overload, but I was hungry and I deserved it after my exam, okay? The first thing that strikes you is the quantity of sausages- Tesco haven’t held back here, there are 7 tin-size sausages, more than other tin averages. The sausages are even softer than most tinned… [Read More]

Tesco Lincolnshire Sausage Casserole

27 April 2012

Quite a sweet, thick sauce- a bit like drinking gravy. Very simple microwave instructions. Tasty. Strong sausage flavour in the sauce. The sausage itself is a bit of a letdown- soft, less flavoursome than the sauce surrounding it. Though its softness makes eating this dish with a spoon nice and easy. The sausage meat is… [Read More]
