ALDI – Priano Four Cheese Alfredo Sauce – Food Review


ALDI, priano, four cheese alfredo sauce, nutrition, price, calories, reviewMay 8, 2017

The second ingredient is cream.  That’s a good sign as that’s what an Alfredo sauce is all about.  From the jar the sauce is a little watery, as water is the first ingredient.  However it thickens some when added to warm pasta.  Even better is heating the sauce either before the pasta is added or after the pasta is added.  To save a pot, and some cleaning, I added sauce straight from the jar to the cooked warm pasta and then nuked the plate in the microwave for about a minute.  That thickened up the sauce and made it stick to the pasta nicely.  There’s a suggestion on the jar which hints at the need for heating the sauce to thicken.

For a 4 cheese sauce this is not very cheesy.  A bit of grated Parmesan cheese mixed in the pasta and sauce corrected that.  The added cheese also helped thicken the sauce.  If you’re looking for a garlic flavor in your Alfredo, this is not your sauce.  It’s a very plain and slightly sweet sauce.  There’s also a roasted garlic version of the sauce which I haven’t tried.  Of course, also untried, a sprinkle of garlic powder is likely to liven things up a bit.

    Priano Four Cheese Alfredo sauce is the absolute worst Alfredo sauce!!! Not only will I never buy it again but I am going to throw away the leftovers. I don’t understand how you can ruin Alfredo sauce like you do. Priano pasta is very good so I expected this sauce to be good. My favorite Alfredo sauce is Olive Garden’s & second favorite is Costco’s.

    This sauce was super gross. I just don’t equate sweet with pasta sauces. The smell was somewhat overpowering. Never again.

    I grabbed 2 jars of the Priano Four cheese alfredo sauce from Aldi.. Used just a little bit of the second jar. Cut up some chicken to mix with it, only to find out this stuff is nasty!!! I threw the rest in the trash.. Total waste of money!!!
