Taste Test Tuesday: Glicco’s Pasta Gravy

How much do you love a bowl of pasta? Especially a bowl of pasta with a great sauce. Well today we have something that will be sure to enhance your love of pasta or any food for that matter. We were contacted by Derek of Elbow Foods to review this product and after reading the history behind this pasta gravy we couldn’t refuse.

Glicco’s Pasta Gravy

This pasta gravy, and Yes, we said ‘GRAVY’ is made with fresh tomatoes, garlic, onions, bell peppers, herbs and honey. A spoonful right out the jar and we were hooked. A smooth rich taste, with the flavors of the peppers, onions and herbs right there for you to see and taste makes this gravy a great find.

It’s fat-free and only 38 calories per serving. This pasta gravy truly tastes like it came straight from someone’s Italian gramma’s kitchen, like she’s standing over a huge pot on the stove and poured some in a jar jut for you. We’ve tasted pasta sauces before, and some have been watered down, not this one. Glicco’s pasta gravy does not seep to the bottom of the pot.

Be sure to check out their website Elbow Foods and ‘Like’ their page on Facebook. Glicco’s Pasta  Gravy is sold in some specialty grocery stores. You can check your local retailer.  They even have some recipes on their site, that we are going to try out. Here are two for you to try.
