Super Easy 3 Ingredient Barilla Pasta Meal!
This is a sponsored post
There’s no feeling in the world that compares to not knowing what to cook for either lunch or dinner. It seems I always have 3 hungry kids at home and it’s never easy to come home from work and not know what to cook. Our menu is all over the place sometimes. We can have Mexican food one night and leftovers the next day or we can be in the mood for Filipino food for the whole week. Is your home cooking menu the same way? One dish that is always easy to make and super easy to store is pasta. It’s diverse and everything seems to be better with pasta. Especially, Barilla pasta.
Whenever I do my weekly shopping at Walmart, pasta is always in my cart. Since we’re winding down summer vacation (YAY!), the tween have started getting bored of the day-to-day cereal and sandwiches. This is why when I cook, I like to cook a lot, that way they next day the kids, whether home for summer vacation or hungry during homework time, there’s always food in the fridge. One thing that I’ve been doing lately with the kids is having them help me in the kitchen more and more. I mean, my Boy Scout can pitch a tent and start a fire, so he knows how to be careful in the kitchen. My daughter loves cooking with me so it’s second nature for her be right in the kitchen stirring or sautéing. She is such a great cook!
This meal uses 3 ingredients and it’s very easy to make. Made with Barilla Rotini, Barilla Tomato & Basil sauce and my favorite sausage: Chicken and Apple! Check out the recipe and pick up these ingredients the next time you’re at Walmart!
3 Ingredient Rotini Pasta Dish
1 box of Barilla Rotini pasta
1 jar of Tomato & Basil sauce
1 pack of your favorite chicken and apple sausage
Cook the pasta as directed on the box and get ready to enjoy the twists and spirals of Rotini that allow the pasta to collect so much flavor in its nooks and crannies.
I love this pasta! Next, we heat the sauce as directed. The sauce uses Simple Ingredients, No Preservatives, is Gluten Free, Kosher and Made with Non-GMO Ingredients. As parents, what more can we ask for, right? Fry or grill your favorite Chicken and Apple sausage. One the pasta is done cooking, pour out the water and mix the pasta immediately with the sauce in a separate mixing bowl. Once the sausage is done, slice the sausage into small coins and mix into the past. You can top the pasta dish with some parsley and parmesan cheese. Your’e done. Easy and ready to eat.
This is a great go-to meal that the kids will enjoy now that they are heading back to school. I’m happy they are going back and to be honest, even they are starting to ask when they go back to school. As we start to prep for our back to school shopping and start buying stuff for lunches, we have the wonderful opportunity to partner up with on of my favorite organizations; The No Kid Hungry organization.
Did you know that 48.8 million Americans—including 13 million children— live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As a result, they struggle with hunger at some time during the year. Check out more facts here! This is why I’m proud to join the effort and help this national non-profit organization that focuses on connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
For every box of Barilla Blue Box pasta purchase at Walmart between 8/10/2017 – 10/31/2017, Barilla will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry, up to $50,000. That’s enough to provide 500,000 meals to kids in need. Learn more at nokidhungry.org/onedollar.
