I’m a huge TJ fan but this is probably the worst TJ product I’ve tried. I would not think of adding cumin to spaghetti sauce. The Arrabiata Sauce is far superior for a spicy sauce.

I like this sauce though it is a bit spicy for me so I mixed a jar of this with a jar of TJ Bolognese sauce and it took it to the right heat index for me. I suppose any regular TJ pasta sauce would have worked just as well but that is what I had on hand.

First bite of my pasta and I hated it. My pasta tasted like chilli because there is cumin in this, which if I’d realized before purchasing, I would not have bought it. If you aren’t a fan of cumin or your pasta tasting like chilli, I don’t recommend.

The cumin in this completely ruins the sauce. This tastes more like something I would add to a chili recipe, not put on spaghetti.

Horrible sauce. We’re not too particular, but it didn’t even taste like spaghetti sauce, more like chili. Yuck!

Terrible stuff. Tasted like enchilada sauce. It might not be bad as a Mexican style sauce, but it made for terrible eggplant parmigiana.

I’m a huge TJ’s fan but this sauce is honestly horrible. Overpowering, doesn’t taste like pasta sauce, and gave me some nasty stomach issues, to boot. Let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t make this on date night. Should be discontinued.

I’ve used this sauce in two recipes that turned out finger-licking. Breakfast: poached eggs. Saute semi-chopped white onion. Add the sauce, thinned out with drops of water. Heat to warm. Drop egg/s in the center of the skillet, cover and simmer to desired consistency. Soup: Hursts HamBeens 15-bean soup mix. Substitute the can tomatoes called for in the recipe with this (pasta) sauce. You know the recipe is a winner when you keep doing taste tests and hum to yourself.

I served this over homemade upside down tamale pie and it served its purpose. Cumin flavor forward not for everybody but think I this sauce can be versatile if looking for a more smokey, peppery flavor. I like the idea of pan of sauce with poached eggs also.
