Creative pasta with the Pasta Shoppe!

We love pasta. This opportunity to review and sample different types of pasta was a perfect fit. Looking at all the creative pasta options was a lot of fun! I received a box full of different pasta types to try. As you can see in the picture, there were a lot of wonderful and creative choices.
The ones I received were a Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair, Chicken Noodle, Florida State Seminoles, Florida Gators, Cheesy Pasta Down on the Farm, Music designs, and then a bonus of Vanilla Bean Meringues. It was so fun to open the box and see what all we received, like an early Christmas!
I also received brochures for their complete line of pasta and one for fundraising, which looks like a great opportunity to try!

We decided to try the Cheesy Pasta first. We received the Down on the Farm variety and it was fun looking for the animals. It would be great for little kids learning about animals on the farm. Turn eating into a lesson! (says the homeschool mom)

It also comes with a coloring page for the kids on the inside of the package! What a wonderful idea!

The basic idea is the same as any mac and cheese box, but the taste is better, and when you add the fun for the kids, makes it a special treat. 

Each bag of pasta comes with recipes to try. Some you can make into pasta salad, and other unique recipes. We had one that came with a recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Pasta. Having a teenage son, that was a must! You add pizza sauce and shredded cheese and pepperoni. We didn't have any pepperoni, so ours was more like cheese pizza. I was amazed that it actually did taste like pizza. It was a great addition and I know we will be making it often! 

Our other favorite one so far is the Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair. The pasta starts out looking like little birds nests. When it's finished, you add sauce to the middle of your nest. It worked great. 

This is how they came out. The nests really do stay formed as nests for the most part. It is very tasty pasta. 

Overall I think the Pasta Shoppe has an amazing product. There are so many different varieties, there is something for everyone.  Some of my favorite categories are the ones for each season,  animals, and sports. You have to check it out!  Something for everyone.There are so many more I want to try, including different chili's and soups. Great taste, great choices, and great prices! The Pasta Shoppe has it all!
