Marks and Spencer are currently offering the ingredients for an Italian meal for €4.25. You can get 500g of pasta, a jar of sauce and some nice-looking garlic ciabatta.
I’m not a big fan of pre-made pasta sauces, I find the homemade stuff is nicer and really cheap to put together – but the M&S version may be worth trying, particularly on those nights where you’re too whacked to make your own sauce. It’s a good price as this will easily feed 3-4 people.
It’s also nice to see that they’re including wholemeal pasta with this offer: wholemeal pasta can often be hard to find.
