5 new ways to cook with your favourite pasta sauces

They may be called pasta sauces, but our favourite jars of Bolognese, carbonara and spicy tomato don't have to be confined to a bowl of spaghetti. From shakshuka to pizza and a croque monsieur, we've come up with 5 new recipes which are made simpler and tastier by using pasta sauce.

spicy tomato Shakshuka

A north African favourite for brunch or a quick supper, this pepper, tomato and egg dish is made simpler and quicker by encorporating a jar of Asda spicy tomato sauce. Sprinkle with chopped coriander and drizzle with yoghurt and you can have a delicious, flavour-packed dish on the table in 25 minutes.

bolognese rigatoni pie

Bolognese fans - you need to check out this super easy, meaty and cheesy pie. Made by standing up cooked rigatoni on its end, topping with Bolognese sauce and mozzarella and baking in an oven, this dish is ideal for serving to friends if you want something with the 'wow' factor. 

SAUSAGE AND MOZZARELLA PIZZA

Making your own pizza at home is much easier than you may think. By using our pizza mix and topping with our garlic and tomato sauce, your base is ready to be loaded with whatever toppings you have at home. We've opted for sausage, mozzarella and basil in our pizza but use your imagination and enjoy a slice of a homemade Italian classic.

carbonara croque monsieur

Take your grilled cheese and ham sandwich to the next level by adding a few tablespoons of carbonara sauce. It combines with the melting cheese to create an even gooier and indulgent centre. Warning: this is strictly not for sharing.

Creamy tomato aubergine bake

Use our creamy tomato sauce to create this easy and delicious vegetarian main. Layering onions with slices of golden fried aubergine and courgette, then topping with ripe cherry tomatoes makes a dish that's as pretty as a picture.
