After having my 4th child I knew it would be important to find a routine that would allow us to have frequent family nights. This is something that my family and I always looked forward to. Family night allows us time to catch up, check-in and just enjoy each others company. We’ve been doing it since my two oldest children were little. Whether it was games or movies food was always the center of our gatherings. I love combining our favorite meals and snacks with some of our favorite activities and look forward to adding the new addition in on these traditions. The other night Greg, the kids and myself had family night featuring the kids most requested dish, spaghetti. Just like that a day was set and spaghetti and salad was on the menu. I’ve been wanting to try out a different sauce for this frequently made family meal. While I was preparing my ingredient shopping list on @Krogerco app, I picked up Vero Gusto® Sicilian Herb sauce by Barilla®. And since I am already a big fan of their pasta I really wanted to give this sauce a try.
I honestly cannot remember our last family night where we enjoyed a meal together. Having a hard pregnancy didn’t allow for much time together. We missed having a fun night in just eating and telling jokes. I was so determined to make this happen sooner than later. So, it felt great to finally get back to that.
Straight out the jar the sauce is so yummy! It is made slowly with a soffritto of garlic, onion and carrots. I love that there is nothing artificial and no added sugar in this Vero Gusto® sauce by Barilla®, While the pasta was cooking, I added some sautéed peppers, onions, mushrooms and garlic to the sauce and let simmer. I added the drained noodles to a serving bowl and topped with the sauce. Let me just say it will not be the last time I use Vero Gusto® sauce by Barilla®. It is true to Italian cooking! Right away my family noticed the difference. They raved about how delicious the sauce was. This sauce was truly the perfect addition to my pasta. I can truly say family night was a big hit! There wasn’t even enough for left-overs. If you are looking for that true Italian taste, look no farther. Check out Kroger for this yummy Vero Gusto® Sicilian Herb Sauce by Barilla®. I promise you will not be disappointed.
