While I was dashing from the bus to the cinema this weekend I spotted a familiar logo on one of the promotional huts that hide outside Morrison's occasionally. Having been a fan of the Giovani Rana pasta ever since I stumbled upon it, the idea of a free snack of a new flavour was enticing.
We got sent their sauces a couple of years ago to review and first had these pasta parcels way back in 2011!
I had the chicken and bacon flavour, and I got a nice compostable fork and bowl with 5 pieces in.
The deal was this. If you buy two packs of the pasta from any store and then keep the receipt they will send you the £5 back. For something I'd probably buy anyway this was a deal. It's not a location specific thing, it's a timed deal on their website.
I chose a veg style one, and a meat one.
And yeah - you may spot they are double the price of the own brand ones, but they are so worth it.
The veg based one is Spinach & Ricotta, takes two mins to cook and is as soft and tender as you'd expect.
The meaty one was Prosciutto and Mozzarella
And has a nice picture of everyone on the back by the special offer for the free pasta
Still my favourite brand of filled pasta, rich flavours and great textures.
