Cacio E Pepe Pasta Sauce: 6/10
🚨NEW ITEM🚨 Last summer #Traderjoes rolled out some incredible Cacio e Pepe items like the frozen pasta and the ravioli. Both were amazing so I had high hopes for this brand new sauce! Unfortunately, I didn’t taste the same great flavor in this sauce like the other items. I love Cacio e Pepe for its bold, black peppercorn flavor, but I felt like this pasta sauce was on the bland side and lacking that pepper flavor. I kept adding more sauce to my pasta, but still wasn’t getting much. It had a pretty good cheesy flavor, though. This sauce reminded me of the jarred Alfredo sauces TJ’s has on the shelves which also leave me wanting more flavor. The texture of this sauce is thick and spread nicely over the pasta, I just wish it was more flavorful. Cacio e Pepe is so easy to make homemade, I would easily pick the extra effort of making it at home than this pre-made jar. Each jar is $3.49.
