Like Sooty without Sweep, and Sue without Mel, Orgran’s gluten free spaghetti in tomato sauce was okay, but there was something missing. I’m not sure what the something was (and it wasn’t a gormless squeaky thing either and yes, I know that’s not a nice way to describe Mel Giedroyc), but there was no ‘aaah, tinned spaghetti in tomato sauce’ comfort factor here.
The appearance was fine, it smelt tomatoey and all was looking good but the doubt crept in when I picked up a bit that had fallen on to the chopping board and it felt hard. Hard? Tinned spaghetti shouldn’t feel hard, should it? Shouldn’t it be a bit squidgy?
When it’s an unheated cold baked bean that’s fallen on to the chopping board, I usually eat it (it’s not just me who does that, is it? No? Good) but this time I decided to wait until the spaghetti was cooked.
It looked like any other spaghetti on toast – except it was already cut up into pieces and I like my spaghetti whole. Then again, the Meat Eater likes his cut up into short strands, so it’s not really something to criticise. It also tasted fine, it was just the texture and the texture actually wasn’t that bad, it just wasn’t quite right. I wish I could describe more how it wasn’t quite right but I’m afraid my Sooty and Sue analogy above is going to have to do.
