The Pasta Shoppe Pasta Goodie Box and Fundraising Program Giveaway / Review $30 Value

Disclaimer: The Pasta Shoppe provided me with a free samples of their product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

The new school year is in full swing.  And I don't know about you, but from personal experience supper time can be a huge struggle.  I am always looking for easy and simple meals that my entire family will enjoy. 

I think one of the top picks for an easy supper around our house, some how always revolves around pasta.  They love pasta and sauce, pasta in soup, plain pasta and baked pasta cassorole to list off just a few. 

So when I found out about a company that sells amazing pasta that is proudly Made in the USA I had to find out more.  Well this business has been around for over 18 years, so they must be doing something correct.

Their name is:

Yes, such a simple to remember name and pasta that you soon will not forget.  Their pasta is made in small batches the Old Italian way to insure quality, taste and texture.

And before I start my raving review about my Pasta-licous experience and give you an opportunity to win a $30 (value) The Pasta Shoppe Goodie Box; I have to share another great offering from this USA business.

The Pasta Shoppe offers a fundraising program called Fun Pasta Fundraising.  What a great idea!  My boys already are "noodle heads" and ask for pasta all the time.  Why not have your school start a great new fundraising program that allows students to sell something they already love and is a good food choice.  You can learn more about the Fun Pasta Fundraising Program online and request more information about this great profit earning potential for organizations.

Okay let me tell you about the amazing box from The Pasta Shoppe that arrived.

Per my Husker loving Hubby, he said I needed to tell you about the fun and delicious Collegiate pasta salad that is offered by The Pasta Shoppe.

Yes, we received The Ultimate Huskers Pasta Salad.  This great team spirit kit is offered in a huge variety of teams.  Each bag comes with 3 recipes, the collegiate shaped and colored pasta, and a Game Day Vinaigrette Mix.  What a great gift idea for your sports fans!

The four different varieties of pasta that arrived were fantastic, fun and easy to prepare.

The Music & Pasta was a hit with everyone, but especially our 5 year old son. 

How do you tell a face like that...not to play with his supper?  I couldn't.

Like the package said, "pasta with personality".  The colored noodles did fade a bit in color, but still tasted great and held their shapes without being overly firm. 

The other varieties that came were Cheerleading pasta, Prancin & Dancin' Reindeer Pasta and Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair Nests.  But that doesn't even begin to show the different types of pasta and meals The Pasta Shoppe offers.

They market Pasta with Personality, Angel Hair Pasta Nests, Gluten Free Noodles and the Collegiate Pasta Salads.

But beyond those products, The Pasta Shoppe offers family favorites like the two soups that arrived in my goodie box.  The Chicken Noodle Soup Mix with Chicken Noodle Flavor and Wintertime Chili with mild-medium chili mix.  I like how simple the instructions are for these soup mixes as well all other variations of soups that are also sold.  I love the quick and simple element!  Plus the pasta that is included with these soup mixes are in fun shapes. 

And if you need a little sweet after enjoying a pasta meal, The Pasta Shoppe has your sweet tooth covered.  They offer Divine Meringues.  I love that this crunchy but creamy cookie only has 7 calories and is all natural.  What a great guilt free dessert.

So who wants to win The Pasta Shoppe Pasta Goodie Box  - including the winners choice of what bag of Collegiate Pasta they will receive?  The giveaway is only for Cont. US locations and does not include HI or AK.

Did I just here a "me, me MEEEEE!!!"?
