In our house we have a few no-fail meals that we can turn to when the days are rushed and we don’t want to pick up fast food.
One of them, like many families, is pasta! It’s quick, easy, and pretty tasty. Still, pasta and sauce can get boring if you don’t find some creative ways to spice things up.
We’ve been a spaghetti family for years but now eat spaghettini (yeah I know, big jump!) and linguini as often.
While opening a jar of sauce can get ‘er done on busy nights, we like to use some of our favorite pasta recipes which take a few more steps than that. One of them, which I simply can not share for fear of being kicked out of the family is my sister in law Angie’s Angisghetti! Yum. Still, even though I have the recipe, I can’t make it like she does!
We recently got a great selection of Barilla Classical pastas to try (including Rotini and Penne Rigate, whoa stepping out of my pasta comfort zone!) and made a few of our favorite recipes using Barilla instead of our usual pasta. My husband even commented that this pasta tasted better! Hmmm…maybe I’m onto something with Angie’s Angisghetti’s secret ingredient?
One of my Canadian readers is going to win a Barilla Classical Pasta Prize Pack (approx $80 value) consisting of:
A supply of Barilla Classical pasta in four varieties: Spaghetti, Rotini, Rigatoni and Penne Rigate
A Barilla timer and pasta measure
A Barilla apron and pasta tin
Barilla insulated reusable bag
A Barilla USB key
A Barilla sauce stirrer
