The Dolmio tomato sauce for lasagne and Dolmio creamy sauce for lasagne have been designed to make preparing one of the most popular meals in the UK easier. The tomato sauce is 76 per cent tomato-based and builds on similar existing sauces from the brand such as Bolognese and tomato & basil but is smoother in texture.
The creamy sauce uses a traditional béchamel recipe but is also suitable for other uses such as in cauliflower cheese.
Both sauces are ready to use, have a 12-month shelf life and are free from artificial colours, flavourings and preservatives. They are also both compliant with the latest regulations on salt content.
The sauces are the first specific lasagne sauces to be launched for the foodservice trade in the UK and are suitable for both gluten and wheat-free diets.
Dolmio tomato sauce for lasagne and Dolmio creamy sauce for lasagne are available in 2.18-2.28kg jars and can be ordered in cases of two jars each at a cost of £11.70 per case.
Both sauces are available through Mars Foodservice and can be ordered through caterers' local account manager or by calling 0800 952 0011.
Why should you buy it?
"By using the new ready to use sauces for lasagne caterers can not only save themselves time, but have the guarantee of a consistent taste every time," Sarah Gray, marketing manager for Dolmio, said.
"They are also highly extendable and produce a superior yield that would satisfy the most vociferous sceptic."
Mars Foodservice says, according to research, lasagne is one of the UK's top 20 meals and is the fifth most popular meal for diners eating out.
