Product Description

  • Spaghetti pasta in a cream and cheese sauce topped with smoked pancetta, Parmigiano Reggiano medium fat hard cheese and parsley.
  • Spaghetti in a silky cream sauce made with full flavoured smoked Italian pancetta and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. To give our carbonara its authentic flavour, our chefs use a pancetta from Northern Italy, which is slowly smoked over beech, juniper, fir and poplar clippings to give it a complex depth. We roast it in the oven to bring out all its smoky sweetness, which complements the creamy sauce perfectly and is finished with a sprinkling of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and parsley.

5 stars

Film lid cannot be removed without a blade. The film lid of this and other Tesco Finest round dishes eg ragu with Pappardelle and Spaghetti Bolognese is too thick and impossible to remove without using a knife or scissors. The film lids on rectangular dishes, however are good and fit for purpose.

Sauce was ok but the pancetta was off

Awful!

1 stars

This is not Spaghetti Carbonara! Tasted awful would give it Zero Stars if I could.

Steer clear.

2 stars

Really pretty poor. As others have noted, the cooking instructions are RIDICULOUS. Who possibly thought that was a good idea? I now only understand what it means due to the explanation in another review. I fell foul to it and ended up with an overdone pile of sludge. And again, as someone else says - the foil needed to be cut into to stir the contents during the process, it was impossible to peel. All in all, a pretty poor experience.

Excellent product but confusing instructions

4 stars

This is an excellent meal, but I am withholding 5 stars because (as others have noted) the cooking instructions, both here and on the packaging, are confusing. I think they mean that the total time for 800W is 4 minutes (for 900W 3 m 30 s) but one could read the instructions as 8 minutes (7 minutes), which would ruin the food. You need to add 'Total' to the first line of instructions and change the highlighting (on the packaging) to another colour for that line.

What I expected. Dont buy if you dont know what panchetta is. Cooking instructions confusing.

Grizzle not Pancetta.

The 2 stars are for spaghetti and sauce. The pancetta was appalling - especially for your 'finest.' Could only chew/eat 2 bits. Rest was spat out because just grizzle or somesuch.

A REALLY TASTY PRODUCT - annoyingly I think the film was welded on as I couldn't peel it off - had to hack my way through it. Unfortunately I wont purchase this product again for that reason.

Taste of Italy

Lack of seasoning. I had to add two lots of S&P to ensure it tasted of something! Shame, 'cos at the price of the Tesco Finest, I am deffo disappointed!
