What I like most about shopping at Safeway® supermarkets is their sourcing of local goods. Their display of Mia’s Kitchen pasta sauce caught my eye last week and so I grabbed a couple of bottles for my dinner this week. They boast that they are chunkier and all natural. I chose to try out their tomato basil and portobello flavors to compare to other brands that usually grace the shelves:
I used the tomato basil sauce with ready made raviolis:
The portobello definitely had chunks of tomatoes throughout:
And I used it to make a sauce with sauteed brussel sprouts, sausage, and baby portobellos. I put part of it onto a whole wheat crust from Trader Joe’s®:
And over some whole wheat pasta.
The portobello was not as salty as the tomato basil but I honestly could not tell the difference between Mia’s and Prego’s® or Classico®. But Mia’s is from Sonoma County, our neighbor to the north, and it’s always good to shop local!
