Have you all heard of The Pasta Shoppe? YUM! I mean, who doesn't love pasta?! I can't actually think of anyone! Read up on how much we loved this product, and enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post for a chance to win a $30 basket of  pasta from The Pasta Shoppe!

The Pasta Shoppe is just the place to get some unique, well priced and scrumptious pasta meals!  I had the pleasure of trying some of their product this past week. They sent me the nicest basket of pasta a person could ask for, including two soups (Chicken Noodle and Wintertime Chili), Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair pasta, Cheesy Pasta (in the shape of farm animals, Zoo Animals pasta, as well as Halloween and University of Michigan pasta! For the sake of this review, I chose to make the cheesy pasta (oh, that's because Mac n Cheese is my FAVORITE!), and the Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair (because my husband LOVES Angel Hair pasta)!

First, let's talk about the Spinach Basil Garlic Angel Hair pasta. The instructions were simple. Put the nests in some boiling water, drain, and who-la!  I did also decide to chop up some onion and brown them in butter. Once the onion/butter mixture was ready, I placed the cooked/drained pasta into it, and placed in warm bowls. Adding some shredded Parmesan cheese, and the next thing I know, I was getting the husband thumbs up of approval! 

The Down on the Farm Cheesy Pasta was next. How simple they make it! In just a few easy steps (boil the pasta, drain, add the butter, milk and cheese powder), and I had a great meal ready to go! With the cute farm animal shapes, and the cheesiness of it, its sure to get your kids attention!  

A great thing about The Pasta Shoppe (other than the great taste, the ease of making it, and the affordability), is that they have a great fundraising program as well. If you are in charge of your kids sports team, school fundraiser or another group who is looking for a fundraiser, you would be a sure hero for bringing this to the table! I especially like the affordability of it. Do you know how many times lately, I have been asked to order off the neighbor kids fundraiser sheet, and I choked as I looked at the cost of some cookie dough?! Ummmm no thank you! Plus, I can make my own cookie dough, but no, I am not going to make homemade pasta, so if a neighbor, or my friend at work asked me to buy some of this pasta off their kids fundraiser sheet, I would be very much up for that! The return is great as well, you get 40%-50% profit based on your brochure master order size. There are also rewards for sales of a certain size. You can find out more information on The Pasta Shoppe's Fundraising Facebook page. Also, check out their main Facebook page, so you can get all the latest news regarding new and exciting pastas, contests and fundraising!

Now, onto the giveaway!

You have the chance to win a gift basket of pasta, valued at $30! Make sure to head over and browse the choices on The Pasta Shoppes page, because they are going to want to know which ones you want!  All you have to do, is read this blog post, which hopefully you already did! The winner will be contacted through email, by me, and I will ask for your address at that time in order for your gift basket of Pasta to be shipped. We just ask that the winner respond within 4 days, or another winner will be drawn. It's as simple as that, and you will receive a bunch of meals, that are easy to cook, and delish!
Good Luck!
