The Peppadew® brand, famous for their piquanté peppers and more recently their pickled jalapenos and pickled onions, invited us to attend a launch, where they would reveal a new addition to their family. I must admit I was excited to see what was next on their agenda!
After much deliberating among ourselves, it was finally revealed that the newcomer to the Peppadew® family is a range of pasta sauces! I am not sure about you but I love peppadews, the hotter the better, so I was eager to taste the New Peppadew® Pasta Sauces!
It became clear to us, that consumers trust the Peppadew® brand name as a sign of quality. They see it as a brand that implies great food with great flavour, conveniently packaged to add an edge to their cooking experience. This has strengthened our belief that we can grow the Peppadew® brand name into one of South Africa’s leading quality food brands.” ~ Peppadew® brand manager Laurian Ovens
After a brief introduction to the new range, we were then treated to a cooking demonstration and were given the opportunity to sample a few of the sauces, which were used in different pasta dishes.
The Peppadew® pasta sauce range flavours includes: Tomato and Basil (the traditional classic), Piquanté Pepper and Garlic, Piquanté Pepper and Olive, Green Pepper and Garlic and Tomato and Jalapeno Chilli.
My favourite sauce was definitely the Tomato and Jalapeno Chilli, as I said I like it hot!
We were all given the full range of Peppadew® pasta sauces to take home and try for ourselves. So last week I decided to give them a bash – it was a particularly busy week so the convenience of being able to add the sauce to a few ingredients was so handy!
I sauteed a few prawns with garlic and a splash of white wine, then I simply added the Peppadew® Tomato and Chilli sauce. I let it heat through and finished it off with a bit of fresh cream. Serve with shaved parmesan and a few rockets leaves.
Also tried the Piquanté Pepper and Garlic sauce and simply added it to sauteed mushrooms, with a dash of fresh cream. Both meals were delish and my family loved them!
As with most of the products under the Peppadew® brand name, the pasta sauces contain no artificial colourants or preservatives. The Peppadew® Pasta sauce range has a year shelf life and must be stored in the fridge once opened.
You can find the at Peppadew® Pasta sauces at Pick n Pay and Spar nationally and at Shoprite Checkers, in Gauteng and KZN. RRP R25.99
