Today felt very much like a monday to me…. except I dressed up Ykaie in her P.E. uniform this morning and that totally tells me it’s a tuesday. peanutbutter♥ had a hangover yesterday and I think that hangover was contagious — I also had one myself even though I didn’t have even a single drop of beer.
Today that hangover was gone. Bills were paid. Chores were done. We were tired! To add to that, it was sizzling hot come noon time and the a/c was begging to be turned on. Except we didn’t because we were busy doing chores and no time to spare even for an hour’s nap to cool down.
We decided to have pasta for lunch because (a.) we were too tired to go out, (b.) we have these Clara Ole Pasta Sauce in the pantry, and (c.) it was very easy to make. Thanks to friends from Clara Ole Philippines from sending them over. It’s actually my first time to use it. I have Carbonara, Creamy Tomato, and Bechamel White Sauce. I think these are the sauces that were launched recently in the market.
I decided to use the Creamy Tomato Pasta Sauce because the words creamy and tomato excites me…heehee. I’m more of an oil-based pasta person but I like creamy, cheesy and tomato-ey dishes. Remember this Tomato, Basil, and Cheddar Soup?
Oh, our lunch was done in 30 minutes and that includes the garlic bread on the side. The sauce was thick, creamy, and really convenient to have in stock for days when you don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. You can just adjust it to your liking by adding cheese or some spices.
P.S. We were trying to avoid drinking soda but we had a big bottle of coke with this meal. It was such a relaxing lunch.Print

Sounds delicious!! Blessings, Catherine
i think i;m gonna use my homemade chinese sausage for this recipe…..
Hmmnn.. I’ll check out that sausage recipe from your blog.
I’ve tried one Clara Ole pasta sauce once but I wasn’t happy with what I came up with. I guess I was looking for the familiar taste. But don’t get me wrong, I like Clara Ole, I have few stacks of other products by the brand here, including olive oil. Mura din kasi. 🙂
I got the same experience in other sauces I’ve tried too! I guess we all have a taste preference when it comes to food we eat.
I haven’t seen any chorizo here in our area, I miss that!
You can substitute sausage or any meat you like for this dish.
a lovely,colorful dish…perfect for making a quick,heart warming dinner,thanks 🙂
wow! will try that recipe soon 🙂 though i’m not a fan of chorizo i think i should use other alternative.
yeah, you can use sausage or chicken.
Very easy to make pasta using Clara Ole and good for breakfast or baon for children. Chorizo Bilbao makes it more yummy to taste. I like it with pineapple chunks.
Will try it out with Pineapple chunks next time.
I haven’t tried this brand yet myself as I prefer a different one. I think I’ll give this one a try – sans the chorizo (not really a fan of it) 🙂
Go ahead, give it a try. Maybe you’ll like it.
OMG! i’m drooling right now,., looks so delicious.
I’m not sure if my son will like chorizo but this one looks good. The kind of pasta used is appetizing to the eyes.
This is why I love Clara Ole. Cooking has never been this easier and simpler.
I couldn’t agree more.
Wow, the dish looks really yummy! We don’t use processed sauces anymore, though, so we’ll try to copy the recipe using homemade sauce 🙂
I like chorizo and tomato based pasta sauce. This post makes me hungry.
Thanks for sharing this recipe! Will try this tomorrow since I’m craving for pasta (for 4 days now!). I agree, Pasta + Coke = perfect combination! 🙂
Hope you like it.
wow looks yummy! if only there’s a vegan counterpart for this! 😀
i have my own vegan recipes in the blog too in case you wanna try out :0
Will check out the recipes in your blog.
I also love cheesy, tomatoey and creamy! Gosh! I am now hungry! I have yet to try Clara Ole pasta sauces.
Cheers to that Ceemee!
This seems kinda yummy..would love to use it.Thanks for share.
You’re welcome Michelle!
Every time nababasa ko blog more peachy naglalaway at nagugutom ako. Hehehehe. I think gagayarin ko to
Wow this receipt is amazing, i love every bit of it and the flower on top of it.
love the photos, looks good enough to eat. I hope you share a post using the bechamel sauce soon, I’m curious with that one. 🙂
Thanks Nicole. I wonder what to do with the Bechamel sauce.
My dad would definitely love this one 😀 I will try to recreate this one. I just love how you took your pictures.
Thanks Rayrose. This is easy to do lang naman.
Oo nga, masarap ang Clara Ole sauces 🙂 Oh, and I love the look of your blog! Can’t wait to see more recipes from you 🙂
Easy and yummy. I don’t mind using “shortcuts” with my pasta sauces and I find Clara Ole a good choice.
Same here. Sometimes we moms tend to be too tired and busy and we need a little help from these ready-made sauces
I use Clara Ole pasta sauces, too! They are a staple in our pantry. Fave ko naman yung three-cheese nila, saka yung pesto at kung pao. Very convenient and delicious pa. 🙂
I’ll have to try those sauces next time. Dami nga nagsasabi na masarap yung three-cheese.
We use Clara Ole on our pasta too! Sarap!
It’s my first time to use Clara Ole.
Omg this looks so good. Though to be honest, I was immediately taken away with the photography even before looking at the recipe. Awesomeness!
Those pictures just made my mouth water. I hope I get to recreate the recipes that you share here one day, when I finally have my own kitchen. I should really hurry up and get ourselves a house of our own. Haha!
Thanks a lot Pam!. I’m sure you’ll be able to recreate it because they’re very easy.
