When I was in Winnipeg recently I stopped at Organza Market and loaded up on some products that we can’t find yet here in Saskatoon.
I must have been on a shopping high because when I got everything home there were a few things I was confused about why I’d purchased.
Like this pasta in a can for instance.
I’ve never had pasta in a can. Ever. I don’t know why the thought of a gluten-free and vegan version of pasta in a can would appeal to me. It doesn’t. But here I had it and I figured I could write a bit about it … in case you miss pasta in a can. (And it’s okay if you do. It’s just not really my thing.)
In any case I decided to give this stuff a try. It’s Orgran Gluten Free Spaghetti in Tomato Sauce. I’d never heard of this brand before. From what I can tell after a quick browse on their site, it’s an Australian-based company that does alternative grain products such as this. I have to say their product offering is quite diverse, though I wonder how much of their stuff is available internationally. It would be neat to try some of their other things.
So here’s what it looks like in the can.
And here’s what it looks like heated up and on a spoon.
It’s pasta in a can. What can I say? I don’t know if it tastes like Chef Boyardee or whatever because I’ve never had that before.
Did it fill me up? Sure. Which is kind of surprising when you think about the size of this tiny can and what the regular size cans of Chef Boyardee are.
Did it taste okay? Yeah, it wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever eaten. It was pasta in a can. (I know I already said that before. But there’s not much else to say.)
Did I feel pathetic and soul-less after? Definitely. Because I was home alone, with an empty fridge, and feeling sorry for myself because all the left-overs I had saved got eaten by Levi and I had no lunch. And so I ate pasta in a can.
I’m probably being a bit unfair since this sort of food isn’t really something I’d normally eat. So let me ask you guys. Have you tried this? What did you think of it?
