Creative Summer Cooking With Help From Our Pantry

Spice Up Your Summer Dishes With Our Favourite Take-Home Sauces

Our homemade sauces add a unique flavour to any dish; you can find us cooking more than just pasta at home with them! Whether you’re celebrating the season by firing up the barbecue for a backyard party or you just want to spice up your dishes, adding sauces can lead to new and delicious flavour combinations. We’re excited to show you how you can bring those Pasta Pantry flavours home for your friends and family to savour!

Pair it with Pesto!

Aside from dressing your favourite pasta dishes, pesto can be used as a marinade for all kinds of meats. Chicken marinated with pesto is an unbeatable combo, but don’t be afraid to experiment! Pesto can also be used alongside salmon, grilled shrimp or as a spread for hamburgers and other sandwiches!

When marinating meats, remember that unless you’re preparing a roast or other large cut of meat, there’s no need to marinate it overnight. According to experts, most cuts only need 4-6 hours to absorb the flavours (if you’re working with seafood, it drops down to 1-2 hours; anything longer and your marinate can actually “cook” the meat and change the texture).

Dress Up Your Dish!

Our take-away dressings are made from scratch and ready to enjoy! Both our Caesar and Creamy Italian dressings are perfect alongside any greens you’re preparing, but we don’t want to limit it to just salads. For a quick snack on the go, try using them as a dip for veggies like carrots and celery or appetizers like chicken wings! As we always say, Bring On The Garlic!

Add Alfredo!

Once you try our Alfredo, we promise you’ll never buy a canned or jarred sauce again. While it’s hard to beat the classic fettuccini pairing, alfredo sauce is good on so many other dishes! We recommend swapping out for tomato sauce when making pizza at home!

This alternative results in a creamier pizza that might just be your next go-to sauce. The best part of making a pizza? It’s an easy way to get the whole family involved in dinner!
