Review of Hunt's Simply Pasta Sauce

by StevenHelmer

I purchased a can of this sauce while shopping last night. What did I think of it?

Product Description: Pasta sauce from the Hunt's brand made with all-natural ingredients. I purchased two cans of this pasta sauce at one of our local grocery stores yesterday afternoon after work for $1.89 per can. I ended up using one of the cans last night, when I made spaghetti as our family dinner.


My wife wasn't feeling the greatest yesterday (she had a really bad headache) so I told her I would take care of dinner when I got home from work. I asked if she had any preference and she mentioned she was in the mood for spaghetti. So, after work, I stopped off at the store to pick up some sauce.

I didn't go into the sauce aisle with any particular brand in mind. So, when I saw Hunt's Simply Pasta Sauce on the shelf, I decided to give it a try. This was both because of the advertised all-natural ingredients and because, at $1.89 per can, it was less expensive than most of the other brands I had to choose from. After having it last night, I think it was worth my money.

To tell you the truth, when I first tasted this product (right after I opened the can), I wasn't really sure what to think of it. It tasted a bit more tomato-like than some of the other sauces I've had and, while this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it was definitely something that did require some adjustment from my taste buds.

However, once that adjustment happened, I found I had no complaints about this sauce. It added quite a bit of flavor to our spaghetti dinner and proved to be a really good complement to the organic spaghetti pasta I used (we found a really good deal on that at Costco about a month ago).

One thing I also noticed about this sauce is I was able to have two servings without it upsetting my stomach. That is something that normally happens whenever I have canned/jarred pasta sauces and I always assumed it was related to something the sauce companies were using. the fact it didn't happen when I had this "all-natural" brand does support that theory.

It's an all-natural product that has a good taste to it and is actually less expensive than many of the other brands on the shelf. I don't think I have any other choice but to say it is worth purchasing if you have an opportunity to.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
As I tend to say regarding your other wizzleys about boxed, canned, frozen, jarred products, I appreciate knowing what works and what doesn't. That way I can have on hand what can extend what I make when the number of guests or the number of re-serving requests -- "Tastes like more!" -- goes beyond what I calculated and prepared.

Would you happen to know of any packaged rolls that make fresh-like garlic bread to go with spaghetti and sauce?
