A few weeks ago I received a sneak peak of some of the goodies that are found in the current PC Insider’s Report. From PC Mini Hummus Dips to PC Chicken Pot Pie or PC Organics Baby Cut Carrots to PC The Decadent Chocolate Cookie Spread (oh yes, it’s even better than in sounds – especially on waffles!), it’s all about getting back into mealtime routines.
Two of the new items really stood out to me after I tried them. The first being the PC Black Label Arugula Pasta Sauce…
… this sauce has totally changed my opinion on bottled pasta sauce. I use bottled or canned pasta sauce about half the time, because let’s face it, it makes for a super-quick dinner. Most of them are okay, some yummier than others… this one? I have to describe it this way, nom nom nom!! This is the first store-bought pasta sauce I’ve ever had where I can actually taste the olive oil and the sweet Italian tomatoes really make a great difference. I can’t tell how much the arugula really added to it, but it doesn’t matter, I am in love with this sauce. The first time I tried it I simply tossed it on some hot fettuccini and topped it with some goat cheese. Second time, same. Third time I used it as a pizza sauce. So good! You gotta try this!
The second item was the PC Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix…
… mixed reactions on this one. Hubs really liked it, which was great because he ended up eating it all less one slice. He thought it tasted the same any other boxed chocolate cake mix; maybe even a bit better. I’m not sure if I was biased because of what I thought to be a scary amount of ingredients that I couldn’t pronounce inside the box, or whether I just am super-sensitive to rice flour because I tend not to like a lot of things made with it. If you absolutely could not eat gluten, this would be a great substitute, but if you can… skip it. I don’t like being totally negative, so I will say it has a great texture. Keep in mind if you decide to try this that the mix only makes one layer or 12 cupcakes, so buy 2 if you want to do layers.
This week I’ll finally be trying the PC Black Label Spaghetti al Nero… I ‘hope’ I found the perfect recipe to use it in! I’ll let you know first, of course. Have you tried any of the new items from the current PC Insider’s Report? I’d love to hear your reviews.
