Fettucine Alfredo {and a product review}

Full Disclosure: I received a this pasta sauce for free through the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program.  Even though they paid for it, these are completely my own opinions.

I love pasta.  Have I mentioned this before? 😉 As a kid, I pretty much lived off of macaroni and cheese.  As I grew up, and my tastes expanded, my macaroni and cheese varieties expanded as well.  Generally not adding anything into the noodle and cheese combo, but expanding the options of noodle, cheese, and sauce varieties.

When Foodbuzz and Heinz Classico offered to send me a sample of Classico® Light Creamy Alfredo Pasta Sauce to try through the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program, I was excited.  After all, isn’t Fettucine Alfredo just a grown-up version of macaroni and cheese?

I didn’t do anything fancy to make my fettucine alfredo.  Just the basic noodles and sauce.  A pretty lazy weeknight meal.  Oh, and we toasted up some garlic bread to go on the side.  ….because I’m carb loading in solidarity of those running marathons this weekend?  That makes sense right? 🙂

The sauce was tasty.   The fact that it is “light” didn’t change the flavor really at all – which is not really what I expected!  Even though it kept its flavor though, it was much thinner than normal alfredo sauce.  It almost seemed like it was normal alfredo sauce, but watered down.

Taste: A, making it “light” really didn’t change the classic alfredo flavor, which was a good surprise!
Cost: B, I’m not exactly sure how much it would cost in stores, but it is surely more expensive than the generic brand that I have been buying recently.

Would I buy it again?  Ummm, I’m not sure.  It is fantastic that they got rid of fat and calories without loosing the signature alfredo flavor, but I don’t know if that would make up for the big price difference.
