Our family loves pasta of all kinds – I swear the kids would eat pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day if I let them.
And I’m glad my kids liked it because the other night, Wild Oats saved us!
I don’t remember exactly what happened. I don’t know if dinner was a complete disaster or if during dinner prep we realized we had forgotten an ingredient. All I remember is we were in a jam, it was dinner time, we had hungry kids, and we didn’t know what to do.
Fortunately, we had some spaghetti noodles in the pantry (see above, my kids love pasta, 99% of the time – we have some sort of pasta in the pantry) and we had just received some Tomato Basil pasta sauce as well as garlic powder from Wild Oats, so a homemade spaghetti and garlic bread dinner became our mission!
We had to get a little creative since we were out of bread too, but some leftover hamburger buns, butter, Wild Oats garlic powder and some shredded Parmesan cheese; we had some yummy homemade garlic bread made by daddy!
We quickly thawed out some grass fed, free range beef we had in the freezer to add to the spaghetti sauce and whipped up some spaghetti.
Now, I have to say, I was worried about the taste. Not everything “organic” means delicious – let’s be honest. I was concerned that Buddy (the pickiest eater I know) would dislike it or that even myself would not like it (I’m not ask picky as Buddy, but pretty darn close!)
I will admit, there were chunks of onions and tomatoes which I disliked – BUT – I could easily remove them so it wasn’t a complete turn off for me. In fact, the sauce itself was probably the most delicious spaghetti sauce I have ever had!
Buddy… Mr. Picky himself…
…ate 2 bowls!!! He loved it!!!
We were all thrilled by the taste and immediately decided this would now be our spaghetti sauce of choice.
Except… organic typically means a high price tag. And I’m going to be honest, we ate this about a week ago and I really didn’t want to look up price. I didn’t want to crush the entire family’s dream of having delicious organic spaghetti again in the future.
But, LOOK!!! Wild Oats Pasta Sauce – $1.88 at Walmart!!!
Can you believe it!? I am so excited! Delicious, organic pasta sauce that is affordable!
