In honor of upcoming World Pasta Day my family had the opportunity to try out a great Barilla Pasta dinner recipe from “The Modern Family Pasta Cookbook“. Like a lot of families we have a hard time preparing a healthy dinner and balancing all the other work, chores and errands that can make our live hectic. Just check out the statistics of families in the same situation and how a pasta dinner can help lessen the chaos come dinnertime –
Pasta is a great meal solution for time-limited households like mine. It’s easy, quick and usually you have all the ingredients ready on hand to make a wholesome and healthy meal for your family. It’s important to me that we stop all the rushing around and sit down and have a relaxing healthy meal together, even it if ends up being later in the evening then normal. Pasta is a family favorite for all of us, I normally use Barilla pasta and I especially love Barilla PLUS because it is enriched with fiber, Omega-3 and Protein.
We recently got to try out one of the great recipes from Barilla’s “The Modern Family Pasta Cookbook”. I let the hubby choose which one and he chose Barilla PLUS Farfalle with Zucchini, Carrots, Fennel, Marjoram and Parmigiano Cheese. I’ve never used Fennel or Marjoram in a recipe so this was a little adventure for us. It was ready in just 30 minutes total with prep and cook time. So what did we think of it? In a word, YUM! It was so flavorful and delicious! I thought I might miss some sort of meat in it but I didn’t at all. It was a great healthy dinner for the family that was also easy to make and clean up making it a great dinner option for us! Just look at how delicious –
