Homemade lasagne tastes great when you have a lot of time at your disposal. However, sometimes, semi-homemade lasagne is the only option available when you are in a rush to prepare dinner on time for your family.
Green Pepper & Mushroom Spaghetti Sauce by Del Monte is just one of many delicious sauces made by Del Monte. When my husband and I were out shopping for ingredients to prepare lasagne, we noticed this brand of spaghetti sauce that we had not yet tried. I would have preferred settling for just a mushroom sauce, but my husband convinced me to give this sauce a try.
It cost just $0.88 for a 751g (26 ½ oz) can which provides 6 servings. That makes Green Pepper & Mushroom Spaghetti Sauce by Del Monte very affordably priced.
I do not usually like the taste of cooked green peppers, so I was dubious about trying this spaghetti sauce once the lasagne was prepared. But, I was pleasantly surprised. The green peppers had been chopped up finely, while the mushrooms were sliced. I could still detect the green peppers, but the taste was not too strong. The sauce was also sweet, which I liked.
It is good to know that Green Pepper & Mushroom Spaghetti Sauce by Del Monte uses only natural ingredients and that it does not contain any artificial flavours or preservatives. There are 80 calories in every 125g serving of spaghetti sauce. There is no saturated fat or cholesterol in the sauce. But the sodium content is 490mg, or 20% of a person’s recommended daily allowance, which is rather high. The dietary fibre content is high at 3g per serving and there are 10g of sugar and 2g of protein in each serving.
From what we can see, this is a low fat, high fibre food. The only downside is the fact that the sodium and sugar content is high. This would make Green Pepper & Mushroom Spaghetti Sauce by Del Monte unsuitable for people with high blood pressure or diabetes.
Even though cooked green peppers are not on the top of my list of foods to eat, I did enjoy the taste of this spaghetti sauce. It is affordably priced, tasty and full of nutritional goodness. This spaghetti sauce really helped complement the overall taste of the lasagne.
