Crowdtap Review: Ragù Sauces Sampling - budget gourmet Pasta Alfredo!

Through Crowdtap I received a coupon for a free jar of Ragù Sauces and selected the Classic Alfredo Sauce. Rather than settle for Marinara or another red sauce variety I decided to settle for the creamy richness of classic Alfredo since I rarely prepare this sauce at home. I also figured that because Alfredo is really thick, one jar would go a long way and could be split up over several meals since we do not usually eat rich sauces. I was right, the flavor of Alfredo by Ragu is awesome, I nice balance between cream and cheese, not too many spices are noticeable. The cheese definitely is the main ingredient. I added about 1/3 of the jar to the meal and the meal itself was enough for 2 adults and 2 little kids. The flavor was a hit with everyone and the meal itself, combined with some sliced Roma tomatoes was filling and delicious.
