    I used to live on bachelors pasta and sauces, never found any of them gritty. Are you using cheaper versions of them? If so, that might be the answer.

    Sounds like they might be out of date or a dodgy batch! Maybe the dried sauce isn't mixing right or something??

    Try getting some from a supermarket if possible and see if you have the same problem.

    Yes!! I had one last week which was like this! It was the brocolli one. I've had others since which have been fine. I kept the packaging so I could let the manufacturer know but my OH threw it in the bin.

    I had one last week exactly like that, it was cheese and broccoli. It went in the bin. I didn't think about checking the date, I was too disappointed and hungry!! Sounds like a dodgy batch.

    It really was awful. Just like eating bits of sand! It's put me off the cheese and broccoli one now!

    Everyone who has had this problem should contact the manufacturer. They can't put things right if they don't get told about it. You should get a refund, but also an explanation of what has happened.

    It is a processed dried pasta and sauce product made by Batchelors (those wonderful people whose other offerings include "Cup a Soup" - spelling not one of their good points!) and called "Pasta 'n' Sauce". Some varieties are free if made with water and not milk.

    Some people swear by it. I think it is the nastiest thing I have ever tried! Each to their own . . .

    If you google pasta n sauce you will find links to the Batchelors website, which will give you more information, and the SW website (or this site) will give you syn values for those which are not free.
