Busy Day But Still Need To Cook
The story of my life! Are there days you don’t want to cook or too busy to cook a meal? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a meal done in 60 seconds? That would be a miracle indeed. Well, that miracle is possible with Barilla Ready Pasta. I’m not joking either. I made the main dish for dinner last night in 60 seconds.
My family loves pasta, but for me to boil then make sure I don’t overcook it seems to be too much on my busy days, so I tend to pass over the pasta wishes of my family. With Barilla Ready Pasta I don’t have to worry about time or overcooking since it is all ready for me to use!
Pasta In 60 Seconds!
I couldn’t believe how easy and delicious Barilla Ready Pasta was after only 60 seconds in the microwave. Bam…dinner is READY! The pasta is cooked right. My family was so pleased with the meal they wished there was more, but we ate it all! No leftovers at all!
Barilla is already a brand I use weekly, so I had no doubts this would work, but I’m super impressed by just how well it tasted. All you need to do is throw together easy ingredients from your pantry to create a tasty meal for your family or friends. Exactly what I did, I had leftover salmon, and with what I paid for the salmon I didn’t want it to go to waste!
Where To Buy Barilla Ready Pasta
I bet you are wondering where you can get this fantastic pasta that will change how you make dinner? You can find it at Walmart right there in the pasta aisle.
You can get Barilla Ready Pasta in Gemelli, Penne, Elbows, and Rotini. Don’t forget the sauce! Barilla also carries Basil Pesto and Marinara Sauce. Barilla Ready pasta is made with three simple ingredients, sea salt, olive oil, and pasta, plus each package is two servings. For a family of four two packages was plenty!
Pasta and The Mediterranean Diet
Barilla is all about the joy of healthy and pleasurable eating. Italian pasta is the best recipe for good living, as it provides the perfect canvas for a nutritious meal because you add what you want to the pasta. Pasta dishes can fuel my creativity in the kitchen, and it helps that my family will eat it anytime, no matter what the occasion is or the time of year.
I’ve been hearing a lot about pasta being a part of the Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean Diet is a healthy way of eating inspired by the traditional dietary patterns of the Mediterranean region. You can eat specific food groups in reasonable amounts and PASTA is one of them! When I had leftover salmon, I knew I wanted to make a simple but tasty pasta meal with the Barilla Ready Pasta.
Recipe: Salmon Pesto Penne Pasta
I mixed the leftover Salmon, Barilla Basil Pesto Sauce, Cheese and the Barilla Ready Pasta then put in microwave for 60 seconds. Oh my goodness, what an easy and quick meal.
