Giovanni Rana Fresh Pasta & Sauces #MakeItMyWay

Food always makes it onto my blog because I can never say no. I'm a real foodie at heart and Italian also happens to be one of my favourite choice of dish. It became absolutely inevitable that the Italian God himself, Giovanni Rana, asked if I wanted to try cooking up a storm in the kitchen with his new range of pastas and sauces.



The new range hit UK supermarkets back in May and are now available in a range of Supermarkets including ASDA and Sainsbury's. 

The wonderful thing about these sauces in particular is that they don't have to just be used in pasta dishes. As you can see, there's such a wide variety of different sauces that they can be used in chicken and fish dishes. These sauces are great to stock up on as you can have a variety of meals during the week.


Note: These sauces are out of date in the pictures as I took some of these photos a few months ago. I have been cooking different recipes over the months :-)

I decided to cook some chicken and added some peppers and a creamy Giovanni Rana carbonara sauce and mixed it all together. To accompany the meal, we had some new baby potatoes and fresh asparagus. Yum, yum.


Another quick 5 minute meal I made was using the packets of filled pasta and the Giovanni Rana pesto sauce. The pasta was filled with just enough goodness that we was left feeling full after one portion. The pesto was fresh and I was pleased to see one pot covered two packets of the pasta; so this meal could easily serve up to 4 people.


Filled pasta is one of my favourite dinners because it is so easy and quick to make which are great mid-week meals. I usually get to a Wednesday and cannot be bothered cooking so filled pasta is always on the menu!


I really recommend picking up some Giovanni Rana pasta and sauces if you are looking for a quick and easy new meal to try out. There is such a wide range of variety of sauces and pastas that there appears to be something for everyone!

The Giovanni Rana range is available in most supermarkets. The pasta retails at around £1.70 per packet and the sauces are around £1.99.

    1. You're welcome Therese! I use a Nikon D5100 (it's quite an old model now!) and a mixture of lenses. For these I used a 35mm lens :)

  3. ooh I love the filled pasta & totally agree that they're so easy to have as a midweek meal. I've never actually had them with pesto, so I'll definitely be trying this out.

      I hadn't tried pesto filled pasta before this either but it's so good! Especially if you like pine nuts, add those in and it's sooo delicious! Love your blog :)!
