I have a giveaway on the docket for you guys today — for one of my favorite pasta brands, Barilla PLUS!
Matt and I are big fans of pasta for dinner, especially when meat sauce and lots of veggies are involved — it’s one of our standard go to weeknight meals. Barilla PLUS is actually the brand of pasta I usually buy at the store, so when they reached out to me about doing a giveaway, I was fully on board! Their pastas are whole grain and higher in protein and fiber than traditional pasta; they are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, but they taste just like normal pasta.
Barilla sent me a gift card and some pasta to create a feast with, and that we did!
Into the mix went tomato, basil, zucchini, peppers, mushrooms, and some lean ground turkey.
Matt sautÃ©ed the veggies together in some olive oil and garlic, plus pepper.
Meanwhile, we seared the meat in a separate pan with some cooking spray and garlic; when it was fully cooked, we mixed it in with some tomato sauce, which was heating in another pot.
We threw it all on top of the spaghetti… et voila!
Delicious. My favorite thing about this “recipe” is that it’s not really a recipe — every time we make it it’s a little different. So much room for creativity!
And now it’s your turn to create your own fun Barilla PLUS meal!
