Recently, I had the chance to try some new pasta sauces from Dave’s Gourmet in San Francisco.

Since I often rely on pasta as a go-to meal for the family when I’m having a lazy day, I am always on the lookout for new and delicious pasta sauces that are not only delicious and low in Weight Watchers Points, but I also that are natural and preservative free.

So when I got my package of Dave’s Gourmet Pasta Sauces in the mail, I was beyond excited to try them. And I was NOT disappointed!

I tried the Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce (3 Points), the Wild Mushroom Pasta Sauce (2 Points) and the Organic Red Heirloom Pasta Sauce (1 Point), but he also has a few other amazing flavors as well: Masala Marinara Pasta Sauce (4 Points), Organic Roasted Garlic & Sweet Basil Pasta Sauce (1 Point), and Organic Roasted Garlic & Sweet Basil Pasta Sauce (1 Point).

I have to say, I adored all of the ones I tried, and am looking forward to buying some more. They are a little pricey ($8.99 for a 25.5oz jar), but when a product is made with such fresh, natural ingredients, the taste is superior and is well worth the extra cost. My favorite was the Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce, which was the winner of the “Best Pasta Sauce” at the New York Fancy Food Show. I’m not surprised…it was delish.

    I often find Dave’s Gourmet pasta sauces at TJ Maxx & Marshall’s stores for around $5.99. The Spicy Heirloom is wonderful!

    Also, my husband has been a Dave’s Insanity Sauce fan for years. I thought the pasta sauce would prove to be good as well!

    I have been thinking of trying this sauce. Glad to hear your good review. They are gourmet, but with that comes with a high price tag in my little grocery store. I may make the investment now!
