Pasta la vista baby Delicious pasta sauces

If you love pasta and you know it, clap your hands!


Everyone enjoys feasting on a delicious, well-prepared pasta meal. Whether you opt for a gluten-free option or traditional wheat pasta, you can never go wrong with this versatile favourite. All pasta lovers will tell you the secret’s in the sauce. Get the sauce right by adding a generous amount of Hellmann’s mayonnaise


Alfredo sauce

Ditch the traditional recipe for a more delicious homemade sauce.

Serves: 2

You will need:

Combine these ingredients in a saucepan over a medium heat. Continue to stir until the sauce thickens slightly. Now, stir in 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese and 2 tablespoons parsley and remove from heat. Serve this yummy sauce on 300g al dente pasta along with some shredded chicken or ham. Go on, have a mouthful! For a healthier substitute, swap regular mayo with a Light Mayonnaise.


Tomato mayonnaise

Tomato and pasta go hand in hand. So, a tomato-mayonnaise sauce is sure to be a winner!

Serves: 3-4

You will need:

  • 3 tbsp. (45 ml) Original Mayonnaise
  • 125 ml tomato based pasta sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tsp. (10 ml) Italian seasoning

Blend these ingredients well for about 5-10 seconds. Pour the delicious sauce over your 400 g al dente pasta and add some chopped olives, slices of pepperoni, shredded cheese or whatever else your heart desires. Not all pasta dishes are served warm. Top your pasta with fresh basil, refrigerate for 1 hour and serve. Mmmmm, yum!


Creamy garlic sauce

Serves 4-6

This sauce can easily be frozen and is simply mouth-watering.

You will need:

  • 250 ml Hellmann’s mayo
  • 125 ml milk
  • 2 tsp. (10 ml) garlic powder
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) dried basil
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) dried parsley
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, shredded

Combine the mayo, milk and cheese in a pan and heat over medium heat. Continue to whisk until the sauce thickens. Add the garlic, basil and parsley and allow to simmer for a further 30 seconds. Now coat the 500 g al dente pasta with the delicious sauce. You can add sautéed mushrooms and grilled Italian sausage, or you can simply serve as is. This meal is even more delicious with some steamed broccoli and chopped celery if you’d like to serve this as a vegetarian dish. If by some miracle you have leftover sauce, it goes brilliantly on top of a freshly baked potato.


Pasta la vista, baby!
