Trader Joe’s new Limone Alfredo Sauce is a creamy sauce with a light lemon flavor. Read on to see if you should grab a jar!
I was so excited when I first saw this in my Trader Joe’s. Lemon sounded like a great addition to an otherwise traditional alfredo sauce. So I grabbed myself a jar and sped home to give this a try.
My first thought on opening it was that this stuff is super thick. It does not pour out of the jar like other alfredo sauces I’ve used. In fact, it was so thick it only came out with the help of a spoon. It also did not easily mix into the pasta due to its thickness and I needed to add some of the pasta water to thin it out enough to coat all of the noodles.
It mostly tastes like alfredo sauce. The lemon flavor is very light and was almost unnoticeable once mixed with the pasta. I would recommend not adding anything to your pasta or you won’t pick up the lemon in this sauce at all.
Nutrition Information for Limone Alfredo Sauce
The nutrition facts and ingredients are pretty typical of an alfredo sauce. Plenty of cream and cheese! Obviously, this means the Limone Alfredo Sauce contains dairy so avoid it if that’s an issue for you.
Like all alfredo sauces, this one has a good amount of fat from the cream, cheeses, and butter, so you’ll also want to avoid this product if fat is a concern for you.
Like all Trader Joe’s products, this sauce does not contain artificial flavors, preservatives, or colorings.
Verdict: Don’t Recommend!
I wasn’t super impressed with this sauce. The lemon did not stand out as much as I wanted it to. Maybe that was because I needed to add water, but it was so thick I couldn’t get it mixed into the pasta without it.
At $3.49, this sauce costs a little more than the regular alfredo at Trader Joe’s and I think the regular alfredo tastes better and has a better texture. If you want something more interesting than that, I would go with the Black Truffle Alfredo Sauce over the Limone.
