We have been asked by the team at Napolina, the UK’s favourite Italian cooking brand, to find 250 UK MNers with children at home to try a selection of their latest range and to share feedback on MN.

Napolina say “we are excited to launch a new range of No Added Sugar pasta sauces to complement our existing range of over 130 products including pasta, sauces, canned tomatoes, olive oil, pulses, pizzeria and balsamic vinegar. The sauces enable tasty and convenient meals to be created, whilst reducing ‘added sugar’ intake. Flavours are centred around Italian family classic meals and have been developed to appeal to parents and children alike.

All sauces have a smooth texture and are available in seven flavour variants:

~ Bolognese pasta sauce
~ Pasta sauce for Macaroni Cheese
~ Pasta sauce for Meatballs
~ Creamy Cheese and Tomato pasta sauce
~ Red Lasagne pasta sauce
~ White Lasagne pasta sauce
~ Tomato with Hidden Veg pasta sauce

Available in a 480g/500g jar for families of four or more (RRP £1.69), the sauces are perfect for creating Italian inspired family favourites on busy weekdays or leisurely weekends alike”.

Selected testers will be sent 4 jars each (variety of flavours) and asked to try them with their recipes / dishes at home over a week and then asked to share their feedback on a thread on MN and by completing a short feedback survey. They will also be sent a pack of pasta. For a list of ingredients, please see: here

NB the survey and feedback will need to be completed by 7 March latest – products will be sent out w/c 22 Feb. Please only apply if you’re around during this time and able to test 4 jars of sauce and share feedback then.

Selected testers who add feedback as required will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £300 John Lewis voucher.

If you’d like to take part, please add your details here and we will be in touch with those selected soon.

Thanks and good luck

Oooh fab! We eat pasta around four times a week and it's my children's favourite. We love trying new sauces, and always looking for quick dinners that will get eaten without fuss! My DC are 8,6 and almost 2. We'd love to be testers, we'll keep our fingers crossed!

Ooh, get question 6! Were some people being naughty?

I was 'chosen' for the Cadbury test and got nothing to test! Just as well, their chocolate has gone waaaay downhill.

Can I ask Napoli if they will sell cherry toms in a tin? They are my secret weapon in curries and pasta sauces.

originalmavis Fri 12-Feb-16 13:10:15

Oh oh and can we say which ones we want to try? I'm veggie.

Sounds awesome, my 8 year old son is going through a fussy eating stage. He likes pasta so this would be great way to try some new things with him.

abeltasman Sat 13-Feb-16 13:04:56
