Anytime I can sneak extra veggies in to my kiddo’s food, I get excited, so finding this jar of Specially Selected Pumpkin & Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce was a highlight on my last ALDI trip!
I found this Seasonal Item along with all the every day pasta sauces at my store. It comes in a 24 oz jar and has a sister flavor, Pumpkin Chipotle, that I didn’t buy (and probably won’t), because my kids usually fuss when something is spicy. (Suprisingly, they gobble up the ALDI Tikka Masala sauce, though!)
So did this sauce pass the ALDI Nerd test?
This sauce is sweet and creamy and no one suspected that it was anything other than good old tomato sauce! I mostly tasted tomato and pumpkin, with hints of the butternut squash. I served it with some Priano Spinach & Cheese Ravioli, an ALDI Find located in the freezer section. They were delicious together and I plan on going back to stock up before the Fall season is over.
Each 24 oz jar of this Harvest Pasta Sauce serves 5 and is $2.49. Any Nerds out there try the Pumpkin Chipotle? What did you think?
