Continuing the trend of reviewing Jamie Oliver things because they are surprisingly good quality we find ourselves buying a pot of breadcrumbs. This pot of breadcrumbs says that it can be added to pasta bake to make it more exotic. I like both pasta bakes and exotic things so despite not using either chicken or fish we decided to add a zesty crunch to some pasta. We used a Homepride sauce because we are old enough to remember the adverts with the little man on them, and he reminds us of our childhood.
I only realised that this would be probably worth a review after I'd tipped out the lovely presented dish into the Ikea pasta bowls - this isn't as pretty as I'd normally hope for. The grilled top of the crumbs looks good and the texture does look different to a normal pasta bake.
The lemon taste is a little bit overpowering. Maybe I was supposed to let it mix into the pasta a bit more, maybe I was only supposed to do a light sprinkle. The lemon was very, very overpowering in places (but it actually tasted like lemon instead of artificial lemon so that's a plus). The texture was great and did add a little pizzaz to the dish, but I don't think I'd want to do this every time. Sometimes you just want to enjoy the lovely tomato pasta sauce.
I have about a third of a tub left so will no doubt use this again on some other unsuspecting meal.
