Today Is World Pasta Day #BarillaWPD

October 25th is World Pasta Day and in honor of this special occasion, Barilla sent me a Barilla pasta care package. This Barilla pasta package contained assorted boxes of Barilla pasta and a copy of “The Modern Family Pasta Cookbook.” My family and I love pasta and eat it on a weekly basis. My kids and I scanned the pictures in Barilla’s Modern Family Pasta cookbook for a great recipe to make in honor of World Pasta Day. Several recipes caught my eye, but my kids LOVE lasagne, so the Barilla No-Boil Lasagne with Marina Sauce, Ground Beef and Bechamel won! My regular lasagna recipe takes an hour before you can eat it once you place it in the oven. This Barilla Lasagne recipe saved me time and only took 25 total minutes once it hit the oven.

 I always cook my lasagne noodles, but Barilla sent me their Barilla No-Boil Lasagne to use in my pasta dish.   I have seen the no-boil lasagne noodles in the store before, but thought I’d stick with the traditional method.  I am glad that Barilla pushed me to try the no-boil noodles because they also saved me time in the kitchen!  My family has a very hectic schedule from school work, to after school sports and anything that saves me time is definitely a hit in my book!  I believe it is important for our family to have time at the dinner table together but this is hard to achieve if your meals take long periods of time to prepare.  Barilla ran a survey that showed that 2 out of 5 people who prepared meals in their homes agreed that it is difficult to find the time to prepare the meals. Thank you Barilla for your cookbook full of time saving dishes that my family will love.  Many times I buy cookbooks but find that my family really doesn’t like the ingredients in the dishes and never end up using the cookbook.  This is one cookbook that is sure to be used in my house!  I would like to try the Lemon Spaghetti, Barilla Campanelle, Creamy Fettuccine with Italian Sausage….get the picture….MMMmmmmm. Right now Barilla is donating to Feeding America, you can visit Barilla’s Facebook page, make a donation and receive a free downloadable cookbook and coupon for $1.00 off coupon for Barilla pasta or sauce.
