One of the best

A really delicious sauce, far tastier and more reasonably priced than the name brands. I buy it often. Sometimes I add mushrooms or bits of peppers just to make it a little different.

Fresh and Light

At 40 calories/100 g this is guilt free pasta sauce which tastes very good. None of the added rubbish of other sauces which double the fat and sugar and add nothing to taste.

Simple and fresh

Good, plain, fresh marinara sauce. Nice on its own but not overseasoned so it also makes a good base for your own seasoning or other ingredients if you prefer. Freezes well too.

Spinach and Goat's Cheese Calzone

Calzone is an Italian turnover made from pizza dough and stuffed with cheese, ham or vegetables. It's a bit like an Italian version of our pasties. Calzone is usually served with marinara sauce on the side so you can dunk the calzone into the sauce. It is usually deep fried but we are baking this version to make it healthier. Children can help make up the dough if you're making it by hand and fill the calzone.
