Today is World Pasta Day! And to celebrate, the folks at Barilla sent me a box of my favorite carbohydrate and the entirely delicious Dinner, A Love Story Cookbook for inspiration.
In this house pasta makes a regular appearance on the dinner plate. An economical and versatile pantry staple, pasta helps me put a nutritious dinner on the table in a jiffy.
According to the info-graphic above, 88% of parents are multi-tasking each day and claiming that they are 58% busier than they were a year ago. Folks are finding it hard to squeeze in time to make a healthy supper.
74% worry that they won’t provide enough nutrition to their families, while 65% worry that they won’t spend enough time with their family around the dinner table.
That’s a lot of worrying.
Pasta is an easy solution to the time crunch problem. Barilla wants to help you in your quest for quick and nutritious meals for your family…
To celebrate World Pasta Day, Barilla has launched their Share A Hug campaign. Visit Barilla on Facebook to help them donate 200,000 meals to Feeding America and the first 25,000 to do so will receive a free download of The Modern Family Cookbook and a $1 coupon off Barilla pasta and sauces.
Barilla’s The Modern Family Pasta Cookbook is packed with quick and easy but very flavorful dishes.
I chose to whip up the Barilla Creamy Fettuccine with Italian Sausage and Leeks for last night’s supper. All told, it took me 25 minutes from start to finish to serve this up to my very hungry family.
Everyone gave it two thumbs up, even my usually carb resistant daughters….
My food photography assistant almost ate my photo subject. She was promptly fired and replaced by an equally hungry assistant with more restraint.
Be sure to visit Barilla on Facebook today to get your free cookbook download and coupon. Not only will you benefit, but so will Feeding America. Mangia!
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Barilla. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
